Aim. It can help improve the hospital throughput to accelerate magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanning. Patients will benefit from less waiting time. Task. In the last decade, various rapid MRI techniques on the basis of compressed sensing (CS) were proposed. However, both computation time and reconstruction quality of traditional CS-MRI did not meet the requirement of clinical use.

Method. In this study, a novel method was proposed with the name of exponential wavelet iterative shrinkagethresholding algorithm with random shift (abbreviated as EWISTARS). It is composed of three successful components: (i) exponential wavelet transform, (ii) iterative shrinkage-thresholding algorithm, and (iii) randomshift.

Results. Experimental results validated that, compared to state-of-the-art approaches, EWISTARS obtained the leastmean absolute error, the leastmean-squared error, and the highest peak signal-to-noise ratio.

Conclusion. EWISTARS is superior to state-of-the-art approaches.
