Thermal therapies such as microwave ablation require temperature imaging with high temporal resolution to calculate thermal absorption and evaluate the curative effects of the ablation. Thus, acceleration techniques of data acquisition for MR temperature imaging using PRF shift technique are desirable. In this work, we explored the low rank property of k-t space in dynamic MR temperature imaging and proposed a novel fast reconstruction method AscLR with an ascending-threshold low rank constraint. Through simulation studies and microwave heating experiments, we validated the ability of the proposed method to provide relatively accurate temperature estimation at a reduction factor of 8.
