Recent advances in dynamic MRI propose low-rank plus sparse (L+S) matrix decomposition for image reconstruction from reduced data acquisition. The L+S method has been successfully applied to multiple applications including cardiac MRI, perfusion, angiography and recently to denoise resting-state fMRI data, suggesting that it might be promising for improving temporal resolution in task-based fMRI. We propose to use 3D spiral acquisition, undersampled in kz-t domain, and L+S method for image reconstruction. Our results indicate that proposed approach allows 4x acceleration for the data acquisition and improved statistical significance of activation maps in the S component from an increased temporal resolution and eliminating physiological noise in the L component.
