A simulated 3D model is produced to understand the study phase behavior of the geometries inside the brain and validate the processing techniques. The simulated phase images show agreement with the real phase data. The results of the simulated data, when compared with the real data, show that the ring around red nucleus structure can be an artifact or phase behavior of the geometry, instead of the general theory of having a capsule surrounding the boundary of red nucleus with different susceptibility value. This 3D model can be used in other applications wherever phase images are used in real data.
