Real-time cardiac cine MRI does not require ECG gating in the data acquisition and is more useful for patients who can not hold their breaths or have abnormal heart rhythms. However, to achieve fast image acquisition, real-time cine commonly acquires highly undersampled data, which imposes a significant challenge for MRI image reconstruction. We propose a residual convolutional RNN for real-time cardiac cine reconstruction. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first work applying deep learning approach to Cartesian real-time cardiac cine reconstruction. Based on the evaluation from radiologists, our deep learning model shows superior performance than compressed sensing.
