In clinical MRI, it is routine to acquire images with different contrasts for increased diagnostic power. Yet depending on the imaging sequences, acquiring certain contrasts is relatively faster. Here, a Bayesian compressed sensing (CS) algorithm that uses a fully-sampled image as prior information to help reconstruct images from undersampled k-space is presented. This method substantially improves the reconstruction quality, and allows joint reconstruction of multi-contrast images.
