Identification of passive markers can be challenging in in vivo applications due to motion and flow artifacts. In this study we implemented a dual echo pulse sequence which acquires simultaneously a conventional MR image together with a dephased image to highlight the marker materials. After overlaying of two images the maker can be easily detected in the anatomical images.
