We propose a novel technique based the random matrix theory to generate a stack of noise-only images in a dynamic MR image series. Accurate local noise can be assessed in these noise-only images. This new method is validated using real-time cardiac MR cine images with TSENSE acceleration factor 3, 4 and 5.
