In studies that acquire a single prospectively-corrected scan it is unclear whether motion correction was beneficial when inspecting residual artifacts and the motion profiles. Here we used reverse motion correction to estimate images that would have resulted without vNav prospective motion correction (PMC). Matched motion tests were used to assess whether the reverse correction step was an accurate representation of images acquired during similar motion but without PMC. Using reverse motion correction on a subset of scans from the Human Connectome Project Aging study suggests that vNav PMC and selective reacquisition substantially improved image quality when there was motion.
