Lately, radial k-space trajectories have become very popular especially for fast MRI. However, radial sampling is prone to streaking artifacts caused by gradient delays. Here, we propose two extensions for a simple but powerful method that compensates gradient delays by estimating the corresponding sample shift using cross-correlation of opposed spokes. First, we show that the opposed spokes don't have to be acquired in calibration scans but can be taken directly from the actual measurements. Second, we show that it is also possible to generate synthetic spoke-pairs for gradient delay estimation.
