We propose a Preconditioned QSM calculating susceptibility over the entire field of view (FOV), which eliminates the errors associated with background field removal. The background is regarded as part of the region with large susceptibilities, which is determined by a preconditioned conjugate gradient solver with enhanced convergence. Our data demonstrate that our preconditioned QSM provides a susceptibility map of the entire head accurately depicting skin, bone, air filled sinuses and hemorrhages.
