The temperature dependency of susceptibility, especially for fat, could introduce errors in temperature estimation. To address this problem, a hybrid model integrated with susceptibility change induced phase is proposed to reduce the phase error. Simulation was conducted to validate the proposed model and a water-fat phantom was made and heated to illustrate the effect of susceptibility-induced phase error correction. The proposed model shows more accurate temperature estimation near the water-fat interface both in simulation and phantom heating experiment.
