In this work, quantitative off-line evaluations have been performed to study the accuracy and stability of PROMO. With the aid of our off-line PROMO simulation package, various impacting factors, including navigator prescription parameters, navigator reconstruction filters, image noises, and motion patterns, have been studied. An optimal PROMO parameter configuration has been proposed. And both simulation and in vivo results show that this optimization improves the algorithm performance significantly. Furthermore, since our offline system contains independent coordinate translation and gradient adjustment simulation module, it can be easily applied to evaluate other motion correction algorithms as well.
