Overview & Program

Workshop Overview

This workshop will explore issues, methods, and opportunities associated with motion detection and correction in MRI and MRS. The impact and incidence of motion from a clinical perspective will be presented. Generic tools and methods for both reducing and handling motion will be discussed, including newer techniques exploiting machine learning. The impact of motion upon both the image signal and spectroscopy data will also be explored.

Techniques for retrospective and prospective correction will be considered, as well as hybrid approaches. Additionally, acquisition and reconstruction of images and spectroscopy in the presence of head motion, moving body organs, therapy planning, and fetal motion will be considered.

The workshop will include lectures, scientific presentations, a motion correction challenge, a hands-on demo session, and the editing of a Wiki page to provide resources for those in the community working on motion detection and correction.

Target Audience: This workshop is designed for new MR scientists interested in learning and becoming involved in motion detection and correction; experienced researchers interested in meeting with fellow researchers to learn and share cutting-edge techniques for motion correction; clinicians interested in applying the latest correction methods to solve their motion problems; researchers interested in gaining information from motion; and industry representatives wanting to discuss the integration motion correction techniques with the standard MR platforms.

Educational Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Summarize the underlying causes of motion artifacts in MR images;
  • Discuss the effects of motion on clinical and research scans;
  • Apply methods to simulate motion damage;
  • Recognize coordinate systems, transformations, and image registration;
  • Assess the latest work on motion estimation and correction using intrinsic and extrinsic techniques;
  • Discuss motion correction in fetal imaging and in therapy planning;
  • Discuss the use and quantification of physiological motion for clinical opportunities; and
  • Evaluate the future direction of motion correction in magnetic resonance.

Preliminary Program

Updated program information will be available once this workshop has been rescheduled.
