Advanced image reconstruction for MRI
Published on
Reference number
Bachelor Thesis
Master Thesis

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a versatile medical imaging technique which is widely used in clinical practice. In recent years, great advances have been made in the area of MR image reconstruction introducing novel concepts such as parallel imaging, compressed sensing or machine learning. These techniques can strongly improve image quality compared to standard image reconstruction but come at an increased computational cost.

During this project novel concepts for speeding up MR image reconstruction will be explored such as utilizing GPUs or optimizing OpenMP implementations. The project will be carried out in close cooperation Prof Juurlink (TU Berlin, Embedded Systems Architecture).
