Swallowing is reported to be greatest source of physiologic motion within the carotid arteries. The purpose of this work was to investigate whether image-based (i.e., 2D) navigators depicting the carotid arteries and adjacent tissue could be used to identify motion and ameliorate image artifacts during three-dimensional carotid vessel wall imaging.
