Intravoxel incoherent motion (IVIM) can be used to assess microcirculation in the brain, however, conventional IVIM requires long acquisition to obtain multiple b-values, which is challenging for fetal brain MRI due to excessive motion. Q-space learning helps to accelerate the acquisition but it is hard to be interpreted. In this study, we proposed a sparsity coding deep neural network (SC-DNN), which is a model-driven network based on sparse representation and unfold the parameter optimization process. Compared to conventional IVIM fitting, SC-DNN took only 50% of the data to reach the comparable accuracy for parameter estimation, which outperformed the multilayer perceptron.
