This work compares prospective and retrospective motion correction based on their capabilities to remove motion artifacts from 3D-encoded MPRAGE scans. Motion artifacts in clinical and research brain MRI are a major concern and the outcome of this problem includes repeated scans and the need for patient sedation or anesthesia, causing increased study time and cost. The prospective and retrospective correction approaches substantially improve the image quality of in-vivo scans for similar motion patterns. Prospective motion correction resulted in higher image quality than retrospective correction for larger discrete movements, and for periodic motion.
