Introduction to motion suppression and motion correction

  • Axel Bornstedt


In an ideal world, the imaging object would not move during the magnetic resonance data acquisition. Motion leads to artifacts in the image, e.g., blurring or ghosting (multiple contours in phase encoding direction). Therefore, suitable measures have to be taken to inhibit motion and to suppress and/or correct for motion-related effects.
