Interventional applications of MRI in PCa management include MRI-guided core needle biopsy that can be recommended for some patient populations, and may lead to improved accuracy of cancer detection. In this work we apply deformable registration retrospectively to recover and quantify intra-procedural motion of the pelvis and prostate gland. Our results show significant motion of the gland, which cannot be fully recovered by compensating for pelvis motion. This can lead to significant errors between the planned and true location of the biopsy target. Application of intra-procedural registration is recommended for intra-procedural quantification and recovery of target motion.
