Despite the fact that respiratory motion is a major factor limiting the image quality of MR examinations in the upper abdomen, little quantitative information is available about the kinematics of visceral motion during respiration. The objective of this study was to obtain a measure of the relative longitudinal and transverse displacements of the upper abdominal organs during breathing using an MR line scan technique. © 1992 Academic Press, Inc.
