We apply field control and prospective motion correction simultaneously to obtain a high-quality and high-resolution (0.3mm x 0.3mm x 1mm) T2* weighted depiction of subcortical brain structure which is a notoriously difficult region for T2* weighted scans at high field due to physiological field fluctuations. The combined approach of field control and motion correction achieved superior imaging results in the studied scenario.
