High spatiotemporal DCE-MRI is a valuable tool in liver disease diagnoses and treatments. Recently, there is a growing research trend which focuses on the motion-robustness of liver DCE-MRI. However, current techniques cannot simultaneously solve the motion problem when pursuing high spatiotemporal resolution. In this work, we propose to combine an accurate registration technique with dynamic artificial sparsity for high spatiotemporal resolution DCE-MRI of liver. The experiments indicated that the proposed framework results in better image quality than iGRASP due to de-enhanced image registration. Compared to motion-sorting techniques, the proposed framework generates better temporal resolution.
