GRAPPA proves to be an effective constrained parallel MRI method. However, it does not exploit the acqired data to the utmost.In our investigation to produce a superior parallel Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) reconstruction technique, we propose the novel method of Infinite Impulse Response Iterative GRAPPA (IIR iGRAPPA). This method uses both acquired and reconstructed data points to iteratively interpolate downsampled k-space data, achieving excellent reconstruction quality without the need to acquire much additional data for calibration purposes. Experimental results clearly demonstrate the superiority of the proposed method over the conventional GRAPPA method.
