4D (respiratory phase-resolved 3D) MRI has
been increasingly used for the planning of radiotherapy and minimally invasive
surgery. Recently developed self-gating methods showed great potential in 4D
MRI by providing high imaging efficiency and isotropic spatial resolution. However,
images of individual phases may suffer from decreased SNR and increased
streaking artifact since only a subset of data were used for reconstruction. A
motion correction and average (MoCoAve) framework was developed in this work to
address such limitations. Preliminary results from patients showed that the
proposed method can significantly improve SNR and image quality without
compromising motion information.
