Modern MRI schemes, which rely on compressed sensing or deep learning algorithms to recover MRI data from undersampled multichannel Fourier measurements, are widely used to reduce scan time. The image quality of these approaches is heavily dependent on the sampling pattern. We introduce a continuous strategy to jointly optimize the sampling pattern and network parameters. We use a multichannel forward model, consisting of a non-uniform Fourier transform with continuously defined sampling

This approach facilitates the joint and continuous optimization of the sampling pattern and the CNN parameters to improve image quality. We observe that the joint optimization of the sampling patterns and the reconstruction module significantly improves the performance of most deep learning reconstruction algorithms.
