Multi-shot EPI can achieve high resolution diffusion imaging, but the ghost artifacts caused by shot-to-shot phase variations must be corrected. In recent works, k-space phase correction methods have been proposed, which require navigator acquisitions for each excitation for calibrating the k-space interpolation parameters. In this work, a self-calibrated method for multi-shot DWI correction in k-space is proposed, which does not require navigator acquisitions for efficient scanning and does not suffer from the potential mismatch between image and navigator echoes. Experiments on liver DWI demonstrate that the proposed method can correct the motion induced artifacts in diffusion imaging.
