Prospective motion correction in magnetic resonance imaging

Malte Laustsen

Research focus 
The project aims to develop and apply novel motion tracking and correction approaches for MRI. This is particularly challenging for neuroimaging at ultra-high magnetic field where head access is limited. 

The focus is implement MRI motion correction through real-time tracking based on non-MRI signals acquired simulateously with MR image acquisition. A main aim is to implement fully automatic prospective motion correction that can be seamlessly implemented in a wide range of sequences, also for closed head coil designs. 

The developed methods will significantly reduce motion sensitivity of MRI with limited extra complexity and hardware. This can significantly reduce the major costs associated with motion degradation of MRI, and significantly help realize the full potential of 7T MRI and other MR methods sensitive to motion.
