INTRODUCTION: Subject movements lead to severe artifacts in magnetic resonance (MR) brain imaging. In this study we evaluate the diagnostic image quality in T1-weighted, T2-weighted, and time-of-flight angiographic MR sequences when using a flexible, navigator-based prospective motion correction system (iMOCO).

METHODS: Five healthy volunteers were scanned during different movement scenarios with and without (+/-) iMOCO activated. An experienced neuroradiologist graded images for image quality criteria (grey-white-matter discrimination, basal ganglia, and small structure and vessel delineation), and general image quality on a four-grade scale.

RESULTS: In scans with deliberate motion, there was a significant improvement in the image quality with iMOCO compared to the scans without iMOCO in both general image impression (T1 p<0.01, T2 p<0.01, TOF p = 0.03) and in anatomical grading (T1 p<0.01, T2 p<0.01, TOF p = 0.01). Subjective image quality was considered non-diagnostic in 91% of the scans with motion -iMOCO, but only in 4% of the scans with motion +iMOCO. iMOCO performed best in the T1-weighted sequence and least well in the angiography sequence. iMOCO was not shown to have any negative effect on diagnostic image quality, as no significant difference in diagnostic quality was seen between scans -iMOCO and +iMOCO with no deliberate movement.

CONCLUSION: The evaluation showed that iMOCO enables substantial improvements in image quality in scans affected by subject movement, recovering important diagnostic information in an otherwise unusable scan.
