abstract = "High resolution Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) requires long acquisition time to obtain the fully sampled k-space data for image reconstruction. Compressed Sensing (CS) theory has recently been utilized to accelerate the image reconstruction speed by sparsely sampling the k-space. In this work, the CS framework was combined with the Tight Wavelet Frame (TWF) transform to further enhance edges/boundaries of MR images and reduce their noise levels. Because the TWF coefficients at finer scale correspond to important image boundary features, the proposed algorithm is able to effectively enhance the signal to noise ratio of MR images without blurring their edges or create artifacts. The resulting constrained minimization problem is then solved iteratively and requires extensive computational resources. To accelerate the reconstruction for real-time medical image processing purpose, the algorithm is implemented on the General Purpose Graphic Processing Units (GPGPU). The effects of various factors, including the register counts and block size, on the GPU occupancy have been investigated to tune the hardware for the optimum performance.
