Acquiring pulmonary MRI images without motion corruption is a challenging task. In this work, we evaluate several conventional and advanced retrospective motion compensation techniques in subjects with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). We evaluate the effectiveness of each technique using concomitantly acquired CT scans, contrast to noise, and sharpness measures. We find that registration-based techniques show a significant improvement in CNR and sharpness. We also observe significantly improved image quality when referenced side-by-side with CT. We conclude that registration-based techniques could be used to better resolve subtle fibrotic textures in IPF.
