Motion has been a challenge for magnetic resonance (MR) imaging ever since the MR has been invented. Especially in volumetric imaging of thoracic and abdominal organs, motion-awareness is essential for reducing motion artifacts in the final image. A recently proposed MR imaging approach copes with motion by observing the motion patterns during the acquisition. Repetitive scanning of the k-space center region enables the extraction of the patient motion while acquiring the remaining part of the… Expand

Non-Rigid Respiratory Motion Estimation of Whole-Heart Coronary MR Images Using Unsupervised Deep Learning
The proposed RespME-net has achieved similar motion-corrected CMRA image quality to the conventional registration method regarding coronary artery length and sharpness, and can predict 3D non-rigid motion fields with subpixel accuracy within ~10 seconds, being ~20 times faster than a GPU-implemented state-of-the-art non- Rigid registration method.

Motion Aware MR Imaging via Spatial Core Correspondence
This work presents a novel MR imaging sequence and an associated retrospective reconstruction method incorporating motion via spatial correspondence of the k-space center, which assumes neither periodic motion nor requires any binning of motion states to properly compensate for movements during acquisition.

Ultrasound-driven 4D MRI.
Two different US similarity metrics reach the performance level of state-of-the-art navigator-based approaches: an intensity-based approach, and a similarity measure relying on predefined fiducials which are being tracked over time. Expand
Prospective motion correction in brain imaging: A review
The fundamentals of prospective motion correction are described and the latest developments in its application to brain imaging and spectroscopy are reviewed, which have potential to make a large impact in clinical routine. Expand
4D MR imaging of respiratory organ motion and its variability.
The proposed method was developed to study irregularities in organ motion during free breathing over tens of minutes, which does not assume a constant breathing depth or even strict periodicity and does not depend on an external respiratory signal. Expand
Motion artifacts in MRI: A complex problem with many partial solutions
The origins of motion artifacts are reviewed and current mitigation and correction methods are presented, with a strong emphasis on explaining the physics behind the occurrence of such artifacts, with the aim of aiding artifact detection and mitigation in particular clinical situations. Expand
Retrospective correction of motion artifact affected structural MRI images using deep learning of simulated motion
The proposed convolutional neural networks framework enables the network to generalize well to both unseen simulated motion artifacts as well as real motion artifact-affected data and could easily be adapted to estimate a motion severity score, which could be used as a score of quality control or as a nuisance covariate in subsequent statistical analyses.

Nonrigid retrospective respiratory motion correction in whole‐heart coronary MRA
Although conventional respiratory‐gated acquisitions with 5‐mm gating window resulted in an average gating efficiency of 51% ± 11%, nonrigid motion correction allowed for gate‐free acquisitions, and hence scan time reduction by a factor of two without significant penalty in image quality. Expand
Nuts and bolts of 4D-MRI for radiotherapy.
This review article provides a comprehensive overview of the various 4D-MRI techniques, and describes the differences in MRI data acquisition and 4D data set generation from a methodological point of view. Expand
PROMO: Real‐time prospective motion correction in MRI using image‐based tracking
A new image-based approach for prospective motion correction is described, which utilizes three orthogonal two‐dimensional spiral navigator acquisitions, along with a flexible image‐based tracking method based on the extended Kalman filter algorithm for online motion measurement. Expand
Matrix description of general motion correction applied to multishot images
The results indicate that it is now possible to correct for nonrigid types of motion that are representative of many types of patient motion, although computation times remain an issue. Expand
