Carotid artery wall MRI is often affected by complex neck motion. We aimed to separate different motion components and correct them for better carotid artery wall delineation using structured light system. A healthy volunteer was scanned for 2D carotid MRI. It was demonstrated that voluntary abrupt motion, unconscious bulk motion and involuntary respiration can all be detected effectively. Both abrupt motion and bulk neck shift can be corrected for better vessel wall delineation, but the duration of abrupt motion can affect motion correction effectiveness. Bulk neck shift distance optimization by maximizing sharpness can future reduce motion artifact.
