#### Compressed Quantitative MRI: Bloch Response Recovery through Iterated Projection

##### Mike Davies, Gilles Puy, Pierre Vandergheynst, Yves Wiaux

Inspired by the recently proposed Magnetic Resonance Fingerprinting technique, we develop a principled compressed sensing framework for quantitative MRI. The three key components are: a random pulse excitation sequence following the MRF technique; a random EPI subsampling strategy and an iterative projection algorithm that imposes consistency with the Bloch equations. We show that, as long as the excitation sequence possesses an appropriate form of persistent excitation, we are able to achieve accurate recovery of the proton density, $T_1$, $T_2$ and off-resonance maps simultaneously from a limited number of samples.
