The aim of this study is to quantitatively investigate the potential of field-mapping method in areas around a ferromagnetic object in the post processing approach. As a worst-case scenario, for regions farther than around 10 times the radius of a ferromagnetic foreign object, the post processing approach (based on the simulated off-resonance map) can be useful, even at 3 Tesla, to correct image distortions. At this distance, the exact shape of the object is not important and results obtained for the sphere, remain valid for most objects with the same volume.
