Non-invasive visualization of both coronary lumen and vessel wall is desired for assessment of coronary atherosclerosis. An interleaved acquisition was recently proposed to obtain both 3D images with MRI. However, this approach is susceptible to motion artifacts and dual respiratory gating results in long and unpredictable scan times. Here, we propose a ~100% scan efficiency, two-step motion correction method using translational and nonrigid correction to produce co-registered coronary lumen and vessel wall images. The proposed method shows significant improvements over translational correction and similar lumen quality to a reference navigator-gated (6mm) scan, despite a scan time reduction of ~1.8x.
