Geometric distortion is a major concern for cortical depth-dependent fMRI using EPI readouts that suffer from low bandwidth in the phase-encoded direction. Distortions are exacerbated at higher field strengths due to increased B0 field inhomogeneity. In this study, we quantitatively compared two distortion correction methods (B0 field-mapping and reversed-PE) applied to submillimeter (0.8mm isotropic) 3DEPI data at 7T. Cortical alignment was evaluated through comparison with an anatomically-faithful MP2RAGE reference by computing the dice coefficient and normalised mutual information. Both distortion correction methods usefully improve alignment. The reversed-PE approach performed better.
