This paper presents a model-based phase unwrapping method which represents the unwrapped phase function by a truncated Taylor series and a residual function. An efficient, noniterative computational algorithm is also proposed for calculating the model parameters from the phase derivatives. Sample experimental results are shown to demonstrate the effectiveness of the algorithm for extracting unwrapped phase images from two-dimensional (2-D) magnetic resonance imaging (MR1) data.
