B0-off-resonance fluctuations can lead to artifacts in gradient-echo MRI with long echo-times. This work presents a purely data-driven method to estimate and correct for any B0-off-resonance fluctuation occurring during scanning, without additional data acquisition, navigator or image-processing. The estimated B0-off-resonance fluctuations are shown to be highly correlated with the signal from a respiratory bellows, the spatial variation of the fluctuations can be determined by exploiting the spatially varying coil sensitivities and histograms of R2* measurements show reduced variance.
