MR-based PET motion correction has been shown to improve image quality in cardiac PET-MR imaging. Here we present a numerical simulation study analysing the impact of temporal and spatial resolution of motion fields on the final image quality of myocardial perfusion PET scans in order to find the most efficient parameters yielding accurate cardiac motion compensation in the shortest possible scan time. Results show that cardiac motion correction is important for accurate assessment of myocardial lesions and that temporal resolution of the motion fields can be strongly optimised without losing diagnostic accuracy, reducing the total exam time in PET-MR imaging.
