SMS methods typically consist of the following two steps: kernel calibration and reconstruction. However, discrepancies between calibration and imaging occur due to either different image contrasts or subject motions, resulting in residual aliasing artifacts. To tackle these problems, in this work we propose a robust SMS technique exploiting Hankel subspace learning with self-calibration and self-referencing magnitude prior. An SMS filter is designed to strictly control pass-bands and stop-bands to reduce the dependence of image contrast on reconstruction. Both external and internal calibrating signals are included in the calibration step, while a self-referencing magnitude prior is imposed in the reconstruction step.
