Eddy current induced phase errors lead to PC-MRI velocity errors that must be corrected. Static tissue fitting is commonly implemented to correct these phase errors. The aim of this work was to quantitatively compare corrections made using local and global static tissue fitting techniques over a wide range of SNR. Average correction differences between local and global strategies in static tissue were on the order of 0.9 cm/s for low SNR protocols and 0.1 cm/s for high SNR protocols. Local correction introduced phase error in ~5% ROIs (always when SNR<30). Local correction is therefore suitable for higher SNR PC-MRI acquisitions.
