In this work, prospective motion correction (PMC) via external optical tracking is used to monitor and compensate for head motion by updating the imaging gradients in real time for the purpose of quantitative relaxometry measurements. In the presence of gross motion, the PMC system improves the data quality close to the level of the no motion situation. In the absence of gross motion, the PMC system remains beneficial by further sharpening the GM/WM differentiation.
