When doing arterial spin labeling perfusion measurements in the kidneys, respiratory motion is an important issue. We compared different methods for doing retrospective motion correction of single-shot ASL images. We evaluated the temporal signal variation in the cortex after correction by translation, translation+rotation and affine transformation and found that the variation was lowest when using full affine correction. Besides, we also compared different similarity measures as used during the motion correction.
