Trajectories such as spiral or EPI enable fast acquisition compared to spin warp imaging. While a spin warp acquisition has a readout of 2-3 ms, a spiral trajectory readout can be as long as 60 ms. The efficiency of the spiral trajectory comes at a cost of image quality through magnetic field inhomogeneity and T2* decay during long readouts. In this work, a signal model with a piecewise linear field map is used to correct for the magnetic field inhomogeneity effects during long imaging readouts . The proposed method shows the ability to correct for resulting image artifacts.
