In this work, we propose a method for prospective motion correction in MRI using a novel image navigator module, which is triggered by a free induction decay (FID) navigator. Only when motion occurs, the image navigator is run and new positional information is obtained through image registration. The image navigator was specifically designed to match the impact on the magnetization and the acoustic noise of the host sequence. This detection-correction scheme was implemented for an MP-RAGE sequence and 5 healthy volunteers were scanned at 3T while performing various head movements. The correction performance was demonstrated through automated brain segmentation and an image quality index whose results are sensitive to motion artifacts.
