Effectiveness of motion compensation in diffusion preparation. At the same b-value, motion compensated preparation (A) preserved the vessel wall signal well whereas the uncompensated preparation (B) resulted in major loss of signal in the vessel wall due to the large first order gradient moment. A pulse wave-gated cine of the carotid vessel wall is presented [see Additional file 1] to demonstrate the pulsatile motion in the carotid artery.
