Compressive sensing and sparse image reconstruction has received significant attention and has demonstrated potential in reduction of acquisition times. However, in many methods, under-sampling strategies are heuristically chosen and empirically validated. This often leads to a relatively larger number of k-space samples than needed for a particular application. The presented work develops a mathematically rigorous and quantitative methodology for k-space under-sampling with respect to model-based reconstruction of MR thermometry. The key idea of the proposed approach is to detect the useful samples of k-space in order to refine the model, and then the refined mathematical model is utilized to reconstruct the image.
