During the last QSM Workshop, the results of first “Quantitative Susceptibility Mapping (QSM) Reconstruction Challenge” were presented, which was performed to allow a systematic comparison of various QSM algorithms. One unresolved issue was the fact that the comparison metrics did not properly deal with the effect of smoothing. Here, we propose a comparison method based on pearson correlations, which are calculated over 1D lines throughout the QSM volumes, and show its robustness relative to other metrics under the influence of over-smoothing.
