Optimal coil sensitivity estimation for the phase-consistent array combination and SENSE like reconstruction for undersampled dynamic and static MR data remains a challenge. The best possible quality for advanced reconstruction methods is bounded by the quality of coil-sensitivity estimation. Furthermore a growing number of MR applications require acceleration together with measurement of phase and changes in phase. We propose an iterative variational approach that takes advantage of a-priory knowledge for the magnitude and phase of the coil sensitivities and also for the complex transverse magnetization.
