In this study we proposed a method to combine parallel imaging (PI) with PROPELLER to correct non-rigid motion in addition to rigid motion either within a blade or between blades. Instead of using PI techniques to speed up MR acquisition, here the data redundancy in fully sampled PI is exploited to detect and eliminate corrupt k-space lines, thus to correct a variety of motion. We use CG-PROPELLER to reconstruct the image from multi-coil PROPELLER data, and then split back to original k-space blades. By comparing the difference between the regenerated and original lines for all blades, corrupt lines are detected and discarded. The final image is then reconstructed from the under-sampled data using CG-PROPELLER. Both phantom and in-vivo results show the feasibility of enhanced non-rigid motion correction.
