Introduction: Motion artifacts is a common problem that occurs in MRT examinations which complicates the diagnostics for the radiologist. Purpose: The purpose of this study is to compile the different interventions radiographer can do to minimize the movement of the patient during an MRT scan. The interventions were identified and divided into three main areas. These interventions are then compiled in an overview. Method: The study was conducted as a literature survey in which only quantitative scientific articles were included. The study included 12 scientific articles who was found in in Primo, PubMed and CINAHL.Results: The results showed that both information and medical measures had a significant impact on reducing motion artifacts associated with MRT examinations. Although technical aids in combination with another intervention showed good effect. Conclusion: Motion artifact is an area in imaging diagnostics that continuously evolve in the context of technology is renewed and improved. To improve diagnostic imaging in health care is needed even more action and knowledge of staff to reduce motion artifacts. In this study, we could conclude that aromatherapy and two different breathing techniques did not reduce the number of motion artifacts. Information shown to be the most used intervention, with good effect on reducing motion artifacts.
