Abstract

Retrospective correction of magnetic resonance (MR) image data to eliminate the effects of patient motion is possible with use of adaptive correction techniques. These methods require an accurate record of the motion that occurs during imaging. The authors evaluated whether motion information suitable for adaptive correction could be obtained from phase-encoded image data alone rather than from separate navigator echoes. Once such displacements were estimated from the image data, motion correction proceeded with use of the same algorithm used for the navigator echoes. The results show that image data alone can be used to effectively measure view-to-view displacements in phantoms, but external markers are required for accurate measurement during axial head imaging of patients.
