Motion is one of the primary sources of artifacts in MRI and improved motion correction is especially useful in high-resolution imaging. Nuclear magnetic resonance probes have recently been employed successfully in rigid body motion correction at 1.5 Tesla. In this work, real time prospective head motion correction based on proton NMR probes at ultra high field (7T) is presented. Simulated motion on a phantom is used for system validation and testing of real time motion correction algorithm.
