A new statistical approach to phase correction in NMR imaging is proposed. The proposed scheme consists of first-and zero-order phase corrections each by the inverse multiplication of estimated phase error. The first-order error is estimated by the phase of autocorrelation calculated from the complex valued phase distorted image while the zero-order correction factor is extracted from the histogram of phase distribution of the first-order corrected image. Since all the correction procedures are performed on the spatial domain after completion of data acquisition, no prior adjustments or additional measurements are required. The algorithm can be applicable to most of the phase-involved NMR imaging techniques including inversion recovery imaging, quadrature modulated imaging, spectroscopic imaging, and flow imaging, etc. Some experimental results with inversion recovery imaging as well as quadrature spectroscopic imaging are shown to demonstrate the usefulness of the algorithm.
