A new method for tracking active NMR markers is presented. It requires no alterations of the MR sequence and can be used for prospective motion correction (PMC) in brain MRI. The proposed method collects high-frequency information present due to gradient switching from multiple short, temporally separated snippets within one or more TR of the given sequence. A tracking precision on the order of 10µm and 0.01° (RMS) for translational and rotational degrees of freedom is obtained. The method is demonstrated in-vivo with high-resolution 2D T2*-weighted GRE and 3D MPRAGE brain scans.
