Phased-array coils are used in MRI to improve signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) or to accelerate data acquisition speed through parallel imaging. It is beneficial to have a phased-array imagery reconstruction method that extracts the complex magnetization information from the multichannel data. In this work, we adopt the fusion frame theory to estimate the magnitude of the underlying magnetization and further employ the matched-filter method to estimate the magnetization phase, thereby reconstructing a complex image that does not have coil sensitivity weightings.
