This project aims to achieve state-of-the-art high precision, fast and accurate motion correction for dynamic contrast-enhanced (DCE) MR imaging by developing solutions based on convolutional neural networks. Clinical applications of DCE MR include imaging the uterus, liver or prostate gland. For the uterus, a major source of motion is the bladder, which can double in volume during scanning – lifting and rotating the uterus. The uterus is, therefore, a good model case to develop a broader motion correction method. There have been no dynamic uterine studies to date that explicitly corrected for bladder motion.
