The unwrapping of phase data is a common problem in MRI. However, its solution is non-trivial for 2D or 3D images, and there has been some general research in this direction, notably in the field of optics. The two most pupular algorithms for MRI applications are: (i) a Laplacian-based method that is fast but inaccurate; (ii) a region-merging optimization method that is accurate but very slow. Here, we propose the adoption of a recently developed and freely available unwrap algorithm that significantly outperforms the other considered methods, allowing for both fast and accurate calculation of unwrapped phase images.
