Title: System and method for correcting motion artifacts in imaging

Abstract: A method for tracking a device used in an imaging system is provided. The method includes using a trigger for initiating a determination of multiple device locations. The scan parameters are then adjusted using the multiple device locations. Finally, a dynamically corrected image is acquired, where the adjusted scan parameters provide an offset for at least one scan parameter.
