Lengthy data acquisition times remain a bottleneck in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
Thus accelerated imaging methodologies have received great interest over the last three dec- ades.
Recently, deep learning (DL) techniques have gathered interest as a means to improve
reconstruction quality for accelerated MRI. DL-based reconstruction techniques can be broadly
divided into two categories, data-driven and physics-driven. The former methods learn a map- ping
from aliased images/k-space to artifact-free images/k-space. In the physics-driven ap- proaches,
the knowledge of the forward encoding operator is taken into account in solving an inverse problem.
In this talk, we will concentrate on physics-driven approaches. We will specifically focus on novel
self-supervised training strategies for such reconstruction algorithms when ground-truth data is
not available, which is a common problem in MRI. We will also discuss how we can use
insights from optimization theory to design better neural network structures.
