PURPOSE To develop and analyze the performance of the variation correction algorithm (VCA), a phase correction technique that mitigates the contribution of background phase variations by combining accurate alignment of echoes, K-space-based phase correction (as opposed to spatial polynomials), and extraction of alias-free phase difference images… CONTINUE READING
