— Long scan duration remains a challenge for high-resolution MRI. Deep learning has emerged as a powerful means for accelerated MRI reconstruction by providing data-driven regularizers that are directly learned from data. These data-driven priors typically remain unchanged for future data in the testing phase once they are learned during training. In this study, we propose to use a transfer learning approach to fine-tune these regularizers for new subjects using a self-supervision approach. While the proposed approach can compromise the extremely fast reconstruction time of deep learning MRI methods, our results on knee MRI indicate that such adaptation can substantially reduce the remaining artifacts in reconstructed images. In addition, the proposed approach has the potential to reduce the risks of generalization to rare pathological conditions, which may be unavailable in the training data.
