Positive contrast Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) based on the susceptibility mapping requires very fast reconstruction for clinical applications. Modern graphics processing units (GPUs) are very efficient at manipulating computer graphics and image processing. And Chambolle-Pock(CP) algorithm is also an efficient algorithm to solve the minimization problem. To further reduce the reconstruction time of positive contrast MRI, a GPU-based parallel CP algorithm was proposed. The experimental results showed that the proposed GPU-based parallel CP method could achieve similar image results, and provide a faster reconstruction of up to 15 times than the conventional CPU-based CP method.
