Intra-voxel incoherent motion (IVIM) MRI utilizes diffusion-weighted echo-planar imaging (DW-EPI) technique to acquire a set of image data with multiple b-values. The major limitation of IVIM is due to long acquisition time for multiple b-values that can lower the feasibility of clinical use, especially it requires multiple averaging of high-b value to compensate SNR loss. In this study, we propose a joint reconstruction framework of POCSMUSE algorithm, to simultaneously reconstruct under-sampled multi-b interleaved DW-EPI data with reduced noise amplification.
