Clinical imaging techniques are unable to outline metastatic spread of esophageal cancer to nearby lymph nodes. This deficiency is predominantly due to significant motion in the upper abdomen. We radially acquired MRI data with a contrast agent of USPIO nanoparticles to image the lymph nodes of an esophageal cancer patient. After retrospective gating the data into motion phases we created images with a compressed sensing reconstruction. We also acquired traditional multi-gradient echo sequences in breath-hold and apnea. The radially acquired, compressed sensing reconstructed and motion-gated images appear of similar diagnostic quality to those obtained with traditional modalities.
