Gradient timing delay errors in non-Cartesian trajectories often induce spurious image artifacts. More importantly, misaligned k-space center data results in auto-calibration errors for parallel imaging methods. We propose a general approach that simultaneously estimates consistent calibration data and corrects for gradient delays. We pose the joint estimation problem as a low-rank minimization problem, and solve it using a Gauss-Newton method. We demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed method by simulation and phantom experiments.
