DTI images are very vulnerable to any motion during scanning. Physiological motion is the dominant motion source in anesthetized non-human primate subjects, severely corrupting the images and compromising the quantitative interpretation of DTI data. In this paper, we present a simple strategy to recover the corrupted segmented EPI images in DTI measurement for non-human primates, without the need for modifying pulse sequences or acquiring additional data.
