Multi-modality MRI protocols are becoming standard in the everyday clinical practise. The advantages of such acquisitions were shown to be fundamental in a wide range of applications, such as medical diagnosis and image segmentation. However, the implementation of these protocols tends to be time-consuming, consisting in one key limitation. In this paper we address this problem by presenting a novel method for synthesising any MRI modality from a single acquired image. This is done using machine learning techniques for dictionary learning. Results show that our approach can lead to significant performance over the state-of-the-art methods.
