The goal of the present study was to use a three‐dimensional (3D) gradient echo volume in combination with a fat‐selective excitation as a 3D motion navigator (3D FatNav) for retrospective correction of microscopic head motion during high‐resolution 3D structural scans of extended duration. The fat excitation leads to a 3D image that is itself sparse, allowing high parallel imaging acceleration factors – with the additional advantage of a minimal disturbance of the water signal used for the… 
Evaluation of 3D fat-navigator based retrospective motion correction in the clinical setting of patients with brain tumors
Fat-navigator-based retrospective motion correction significantly improved MPRAGE image quality in restless patients during MRI acquisition and improvements were consistent in patients who moved more.

Accuracy investigations for volumetric head‐motion navigators with and without EPI at 7 T
Echo planar imaging has been widely used for MRI navigators, but the induced distortions reduce navigator accuracy at ultrahigh field, which can help protocol optimization and guide the complex tradeoff between resolution and EPI acceleration in navigator parameter setup.

Volumetric navigators for prospective motion correction and selective reacquisition in neuroanatomical MRI
A novel method of prospectively compensating for subject motion in neuroanatomical imaging by embedding short three‐dimensional echo‐planar imaging volumetric navigators embedded in a long three-dimensional sequence, which fits well into the existing gaps in sequences routinely used for neuroimaging.
Motion-corrected 350 μ m isotropic MPRAGE at 3 T using volumetric navigators ( vNavs )
A viable system for enabling high-resolution on any 3 T scanner without modification is demonstrated, and the use of inner-loop GRAPPA is critical to this method’s success, as it allows time for the navigator and a sufficiently long FLASH pulse-train to be acquired each TR without compromising the preferred TI and TR values.
