Laboratory experiment demonstrating the feasibility of the proposed method to estimate the B0 inhomogeneity. Black curves (T2*): the measured relaxation times when B0 inhomogeneity effects are present in the free induction decay (FID) measurement. Blue curves: relaxation times measured in a homogeneous B0 field. Red curves: predicted relaxation times using proposed method.
