A computer postprocessing technique is developed to remove MRI artifact arising from unknown translational motion in the imaging plane. Based on previous artifact correction methods, the improved technique uses two successive steps to reduce read out and phase-encoding direction artifacts: First, the spectrum shift method is applied to remove read-out axis translational motion. Then, the phase retrieval method is employed to eliminate the remaining subpixel motion of the read-out axis and the entire motion of the phase-encoding axis. In the presence of noise, to protect edge detection (in the spectrum shift method), two high-density gray-level markers are added, one to each side of the imaging object. Experimental results with an actual MR scan confirmed the ability of the method to correct the artifact of an MR image caused by unknown translational motion in the imaging plane
