We propose a new QSM algorithm, namely multi-scale dipole inversion (MSDI), which builds on the nonlinear MEDI (nMEDI) framework incorporating two additional features: (i) improved error control through dynamic phase-reliability compensation across harmonic scales and (ii) scale-specific use of the morphological prior. MSDI is the first algorithm to rank in the top-10 for all performance metrics evaluated in the 2016 QSM Reconstruction Challenge. It also demonstrates lower variance than nMEDI in a reproducibility test.
