Compressed sensing based parallel imaging is an essential technique for accelerating MRI scan. However, most existing methods are still suffering from fine structure loss. This paper proposes an iterative feature refinement scheme for improving the reconstruction accuracy. We have incorporated the feature descriptor into the self-feeding sparse SENSE (SFSS) framework. Results on in-vivo MR dataset have shown that the descriptor is capable of capturing image structures and details that are discarded by SFSS and thus presents great potential for more effective parallel imaging.
