The overall goal of this project is to develop, implement, and evaluate methods for improving image quality in dynamic MR imaging. We focus specifically on dynamic contrast-enhanced DCE imaging of breast cancer patients. We explore reconstruction methods that use explicit temporal models in object space. Simulation and phantom studies have indicated that our algorithms produce quality reconstructed image sequences that exhibit both high spatial and high temporal resolution.
