New MRM publication: Prospective motion correction in kidney MRI using FID navigators

September 1, 2022

Purpose: Abdominal MRI scans may require breath‐holding to prevent image quality degradation, which can be challenging for patients, especially children. In this study, we evaluate whether FID navigators can be used to measure and correct for motion prospectively, in real‐time.
