In clinical routine acquisitions, the resolution in the slice direction is often worse than the in-plane resolution. Super-resolution techniques can help to retrieve the lack of information. Employing a conditional generative adversarial network (c-GAN), known as pix2pix for T1-w brain images, we were able to reconstruct downsampled images till 10-fold. The neural network was compared with the traditional bivariate interpolation method, and the results show that pix2pix is a valid alternative.
