Dynamic MRI of the orbit during eye movement with high spatiotemporal resolution is possible using a segmented acquisition. Nevertheless, the excessively long resulting scantime prohibits clinical use. Therefore, methods are needed to decrease the examination duration, such as, e.g., multichannel receive array that will enable simultaneous scanning of both orbits and kt SENSE image acquisition. Simultaneous eye tracking enable the control of the reproducibility of the eye motion, and may be used for re-measurement of k-space profiles with wrong gaze direction. We present here methodological improvements that enable dynamic imaging of the orbit with high spatiotemporal resolution at 3T.
