This paper proposes an enhanced denoising autoencoder prior (EDAEP) network learning method for multi-contrast MR reconstruction using deep learning. Specifically, a multi-model autoencoder with various noise levels was developed to capture different features from multi-contrast images. A weighted aggregation strategy was also adopted to balance the impact of multiple model outputs. These designs empower the network to explore the correlations and similarities among multi-contrast images, handle different acceleration trajectories and avoid a lot of cumbersome retraining. Experimental results demonstrate that our method can improve the quality of reconstructed images compared to other classical methods.
