Dynamic cardiovascular MRI facilitates the assessment of the structure and function of the cardiovascular system. To fit the data acquisition time, the data must be highly undersampled. Compressed sensing or sparsity based MR reconstruction takes advantage of the fact that the image is compressible in some transform domain, and enables reconstruction based on under-sampled k-space data thereby reducing the acquisition time. The design of such transform is a key to the success of the reconstruction. In this paper, we propose to use tight frame learning for computing data-driven transforms. Empirical results demonstrate improvement over the transform associated with the redundant Haar Wavelets.
