We propose a novel, non-convex greedy compressed sensing algorithm for phase-contrast MRI. Because the blood vessel distributions are sparse in the image domain, we model that the velocity encoded image has only sparse phase changes compared to the reference image without velocity encoding. Exploiting this sparsity in the velocity encoding phase, we developed a non-convex greedy compressed sensing algorithm to highly undersample the acquisition of the velocity encoded object. We also compared our proposed method to a convex optimization method and found out from the simulations that our method can achieve higher undersampling rates.
