Patient motion during an MRI of the brain can result in non-diagnostic image quality. Even with perfect prospective motion (PMC) tracking and correction, the varying coil sensitivity, gradient non-linearity, and B0 field shift can cause significant artifacts that cannot be corrected prospectively. Recently, a model-based MR image reconstruction via iterative solver was employed to minimize the sensitivity misalignment due to physiological movement. In this study, we extended the mentioned model by gradient-warped and B0-induced distortion corrections to reconstruct the PMC MR data. The result shows the improvement that is remarkably reduced artifacts after a few iterations of the proposed technique.
