MRI can provide superior soft tissue contrasts for radiation therapy planning. However, radiation planning in the abdomen is especially difficult because respiratory motion can cause misregistration across separate scans with different contrast weightings due to inconsistent breath holds or poor patient compliance. While some studies have produced volumetric and motion-resolved images, they are all limited to a single contrast which is suboptimal for radiation planning. To address these issues, we present a free-breathing MR imaging platform that produces multi-contrast and motion-resolved volumetric images using MR-multitasking, dedicated for radiation therapy planning, and under a 9:30 mins scan time.
