DWI sequences based on single-shot EPI have an additional source of N/2 ghosting artifacts that are associated with B0 field perturbations resulting from diffusion gradient-induced eddy currents. Hence, diffusion gradient-induced phase error must be considered in DWI. In this study, we investigate the impact of navigator echo acquisition locations. In addition, the effect of a dummy diffusion gradient is investigated as an alternative method reduces eddy current.
