Susceptibility Artifact Correction in Echo Planar Imaging

The aim of this project is to test a new approach for susceptibility artifact correction in echo planar imaging (EPI). Modeling the EPI-typical deformations along the phase encoding gradient together with mass preserving registration techniques is in focus of this project.
