Head motion is a significant problem for the challenging populations, and the wireless tracking coils has previously been proposed to enable prospective motion correction in MRI. In this study, we evaluated the tracking performance of a novel tiny wireless tracking marker by using a linear motion phantom, and tested the feasibility in omnidirectional 3D head motion tracking using three tiny wireless tracking markers. Both phantom and in-vivo results suggest that the novel tiny wireless tracking markers can provide good fidelity in 3D position tracking, with improved subject comfort and better flexibility in fixation of markers.
