Title: Compensation of variations in polarizing magnetic field during magneticresonance imaging

Abstract: Monitor signals are acquired in an interleaved manner during a scan with anMRI system. Frequency changes caused by variations in the polarizingmagnetic field B.sub.0 are measured using the monitor signals, and thesemeasured frequency changes are employed to compensate image data acquiredduring the scan.
