In this study, we propose a single-scan GRE-MWI method that corrects for the effects of macroscopic field inhomogeneity using a modified z-shimming. In addition, a new three-component magnitude model corresponding to the modified sequence is proposed. Compared to the conventional method, the results showed an improved MWF estimation, particularly in frontal lobe regions.
