We develop random matrix theory (RMT)-based MRI image reconstruction able to increase SNR by up to 10-fold, and to radically increase resolution for routine clinical acquisitions. RMT offers an objective criterion for separating signal from noise across all coils, voxels and MRI contrasts, by utilizing the redundancy in MRI measurements. We demonstrate RMT on a 0.8x0.8x0.8 mm3 neuro exam that includes a series of multiple T2w, T1w, diffusion, and fMRI images on a 3T clinical scanner. RMT can serve as a paradigm for reconstructing multiple contrasts, enhancing image quality for low-field scanners, increasing MR value, and improving biomarker precision.
