The Pilot Tone is a novel motion sensing method capable of simultaneous, sequence independent measurement of respiratory and cardiac motion. Here, we show that Pilot Tone motion data can be used as an alternative to self-gating in a free-breathing, cardiac- and respiration resolved CMRI sequence. We demonstrate in a patient cohort that Pilot Tone motion information correlates well with ECG ground-truth and self-gating respiratory signals.
