The adjustment of system frequency or RF phase-cycling has demonstrated able to avoid dark-band artifact of bSSFP imaging. The optimal frequency can be detected by a sweep scan of bSSFP imaging. In this study, we proposed a new sequence named off-resonance weighted imaging (OWI) for accomplishing the frequency calibration. For higher accuracy and efficiency, an automatic real-time feedback optimization system was introduced. According to the results, the automatic real-time feedback system shows able to calibrate frequency accurately and rapidly. It is potential to serve as a pre-scan for bSSFP imaging or blood oxygenation sensitive SSFP (BOSS) fMRI.
