In this abstract a fast iterative method to filter the large background phase shifts of susceptibility origin in phase imaging is presented. The algorithm is based on the matching pursuit iterative methodology to solve the ill posed inverse problem of finding a susceptibility distribution outside that can explain the field inside the region of interest. The algorithm is demonstrated both in synthetic and in vivo brain data acquired at 7T.
