We propose a strategy based on residual U-Net to reconstruct MR images from undersampled multichannel data by considering both k-space and image space. Our method first imputes the missing data points in k-space by utilizing the intrinsic relationships among channels. Then, the image reconstructed from the imputed k-space data is fed to another network for spatial detail refinement. Our method does not necessarily require auto-calibration signal (ACS) and is hence less susceptible to motion-induced inconsistency between the ACS and the undersampled data. Comprehensive evaluation indicates that our method yields images with superior perceptual details.
