We propose k/q Blip-Up and -Down Acquisition (k/q-BUDA) for distortion-free diffusion MRI (dMRI). We acquire different diffusion directions with alternating phase-encoding polarities, and incorporate $$$B_{0}$$$ information in the forward model of our reconstruction. Multiple images on neighboring q-space points are jointly reconstructed using Hankel structured low-rank regularization in k-space. This allows us to exploit similarities across q-space at the parallel imaging level, thus enabling k/q-space joint reconstruction. We select four neighboring q-space samples, providing us with two blip-up and two blip-down phase-encoded shots, who provide complementary $$$B_{0}$$$ encoding to eliminate distortion in the reconstructed volumes.
