A new imaging method called dreMR uses a variable B0 field to generate a novel MR contrast. The variable B0 field induces eddy currents which substantially decrease the quality of dreMR images. The abstract presents a compensation method which can easily be implemented in the scanner software. The method can be used for any imaging sequence, does not require additional hardware and reduces the eddy current artifacts to a very small level.
