The use of phase correlation to detect rigid-body translational motion is reviewed and applied to individual echotrains in turbo-spin-echo data acquisition. It is shown that when the same echotrain is acquired twice, the subsampled correlation provides an array of delta-functions, from which the motion that occurred between the acquisitions of the two echotrains can be measured. It is shown further that a similar correlation can be found between two sets of equally spaced measurements that are adjacent in k-space.
