Liver DCE imaging plays an increasingly important role in the diagnosis of liver diseases, including hepatic cirrhosis, hepatocellular carcinoma, etc. Motion is an inevitable problem in liver imaging, which often leads to motion artifacts and blurring on image details. We propose to incorporate motion-sorting technique into parallel imaging GROWL and Keyhole compound system for golden-angle radial dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI. The experimental results demonstrated that the proposed scheme can generate better image quality than non-motion-sorting techniques. Compared to the tested motion-sorting techniques, similar image quality can be offered with greatly reduced computational cost.
