A new method is described that can correct the distortions due to multiple off-resonance effects in echo planar imaging, including those caused by B(0) field inhomogeneities, eddy currents, and gradient waveform imperfections. The proposed method uses a phase encoded acquisition and is as effective as the method of Chen and Wyricz (Chen and Wyricz, Magn Reson Med 1999;41:1206-1213) in correcting for distortions. Unlike Chen and Wyricz's approach, this new method works directly in distorted… CONTINUE READING
