Iterative susceptibility reconstructions requires four Fast Fourier Transforms in every iteration and hundreds of iterations to converge. Although the iteration is hard to disperse, FFT can be computed in parallel. In this study, a parallelized FFT based on OpenMP was implemented to achieve quasi real-time susceptibility map reconstructions.
