B0 fluctuation from respiration can induce significant artifacts in MRI images. In this study, a new retrospective correction method that requires no modification in sequences (e.g. no navigator) is proposed. This method utilizes a convolution neural network (CNN), DeepRespi, to extract a respiration pattern from a corrupted image. The respiration pattern is applied back to the corrupted image for phase compensation. When tested, the CNN successfully extracted the respiration pattern (correlation coefficient = 0.94 ± 0.04) and the corrected images showed on average 68.9 ± 13.2% reduction in NRMSE when comparing the corrupted vs. corrected images.
