Susceptibility-weighted imaging and magnetic field correlation imaging are two recently introduced techniques that yield image contrast sensitive to magnetic field inhomogeneities generated by iron rich regions within the brain. Here these two techniques are directly compared, and it is shown that they quantify distinct aspects of the pattern of field inhomogeneities.
