Progressive Sub-band Residual-Learning Network for MR Image Super Resolution.

Summary of "Progressive Sub-band Residual-Learning Network for MR Image Super Resolution."

High-resolution (HR) magnetic resonance images (MRI) provide more detailed information for clinical application. However, HR MRI is less available because of the longer scan time and lower signal-to-noise ratio. Spatial resolution is one of the key parameters of MRI. The image post-processing technique super-resolution (SR) is an alternative approach to improve the spatial resolution of MR images. Inspired by advanced deep learning based SR methods, we propose an MRI SR model named progressive sub-band residual learning SR network (PSR-SRN). The proposed model contains two parallel progressive learning streams, where one stream learns on missed high-frequency residuals by sub-band residual learning unit (ISRL) and the other focuses on reconstructing refined MR image. These two streams complement each other and enable to learn complex mappings between "Low-" and "High-" resolution MR images. Besides, we introduce brain-like mechanisms (in-depth supervision and local feedback mechanism) and progressive sub-band learning strategy to emphasize variant textures of MRI. Compared with traditional and deep learning MRI SR methods, our PSR-SRN model shows superior performance.

A method of delineating blood vessels by subtracting a tissue background image from an image of tissue plus intravascular contrast material that attenuates the X-ray photons. The background image is determined from a digitized image taken a few moments before injection of the contrast material. The resulting angiogram is a high-contrast image of the vessel. This subtraction technique allows extraction of a high-intensity signal from the superimposed background information. The image is thus the result of the differential absorption of X-rays by different tissues.

The volume of air contained in the lungs at the end of a maximal inspiration. It is the equivalent to each of the following sums: VITAL CAPACITY plus RESIDUAL VOLUME; INSPIRATORY CAPACITY plus FUNCTIONAL RESIDUAL CAPACITY; TIDAL VOLUME plus INSPIRATORY RESERVE VOLUME plus functional residual capacity; or tidal volume plus inspiratory reserve volume plus EXPIRATORY RESERVE VOLUME plus residual volume.
