We develop an improved image reconstruction technique for undersampled acquisitions that learns and utilizes the structure of images being reconstructed. The results of our retrospective study with coronary MRI imply that the proposed method achieves higher acceleration rates compared to conventional CS reconstructions. The pilot prospective acquisitions confirm this finding, and additionally show that our method provides superior image quality at higher rates compared to traditional parallel imaging reconstruction.
