Definition: For any x ∈ H, the projection PΩx of x onto Ω is the element in Ω closes to x. If Ω is closed and convex, PΩ exists and is uniquely determined by x and Ω from the following minimality criterion || x − PΩ x || = min || x − y || . fm Page 44 Thursday, June 16, 2005 5:00 PM 44 Advanced Image Processing in Magnetic Resonance Imaging Briefly, the method of POCS is simply an iterative algorithm that finds a solution subject to a number of convex-type constraints by alternate projection. The following theorem is central to this technique, which assures the convergence of such an iterative process.

1 Construction of ρr There are basically three schemes to construct ρr : (a) setting ρr = 0, (b) recycling an initial SENSE reconstruction to create ρr, and (c) collecting additional data to generate ρr . Scheme (a) corresponds to, perhaps, the simplest version of the Tikhonov regularization scheme. It was used in Reference 15 with some success. In scheme (b), the conventional SENSE algorithm is used to obtain an initial reconstruction, which is then filtered by a median filter to suppress any residual aliasing artifacts [16].

5. Bounded-noise variance constraint: { } Ω 5 = {ρ( x ) : || s − F ρ( x )} ||2 ≤ σ ε2 . Although POCS has played an important role in nonparametric image reconstruction, it is not without limitations. Three of the most serious limitations are: First, it can handle only convex-type constraints, which prevents some effective but nonconvex-type constraints from being used. Secondly, POCS can be computationally expensive, because convex set projection operators are nonlinear in nature and sometimes involve constrained nonlinear optimization: for example, PΩ5 for the convex set Ω5 defined above requires a quadratic programming step.
