  • Publication number: 20220221543
    Abstract: To provide a technique in which, in imaging using an EPI method, an occurrence of an artifact when phase correction is performed for each channel is avoided and the phase correction is accurately performed. A common phase correction value to be applied to data of all channels is calculated using pre-scan data of each channel. The common phase correction value is obtained by combining a difference phase obtained for each of the channels. The difference phase is obtained by complex integration, while an absolute value of each channel is maintained as it is. The combination is performed by complex average, and averaging processing according to a weight of the absolute value is performed. The occurrence of an artifact can be prevented by using the common phase correction value, and robust phase correction can be performed by including the weight of the absolute value.
