Tracking latency in prospective motion correction (PMC) with external tracking systems is commonly assumed to influence image quality, however no studies attempted to quantify this effect. This work presents a method to visualize latency-induced artifacts in simulated MR images. At first a MR sequence with PMC is simulated using vendor tools and recorded or synthetic motion with varying latency is added. Thereafter the effective encoding trajectory based on the exported gradient/ADC events is calculated. The resulting trajectory is used to simulate MR data with the inverse FFT, visualizing artifacts due to the tracking latency.
