B0 map is needed by many MR applications, for instance EPI distortion correction. Field mapping is normally accomplished via evaluating the phase evolution of multi-echo gradient echo measurements, which is acquired separately from routine scans and consume additional time. In this abstract, a novel B0 mapping method is presented, which reconstructs the field map via exploiting the information provided by active shimming. Its application on EPI distortion correction is demonstrated.
