Motion is an inescapable problem in abdominal MRI. Involuntary organ movements caused mainly by respiratory often results in motion artifacts and image details blurring in liver MRI. For dynamic imaging, motion also harms temporal information. Recently, high spatiotemporal resolution free-breathing liver DCE-MRI have attracted much attentions of radiologists and scholars. We propose to combine mutual-information-based image registration with motion-sorted GROWL-GRASP approach for golden-angle radial liver DCE-MRI, which enable free-breathing imaging. The results demonstrate that better image quality including SNR benefit, lower motion artifacts and more diagnostic information can be generated compared to current motion compensation methods.
