Electrical properties imaging relies on accurate transceive phase determination. We explored the use of PLANET, an ellipse fitting approach on phase-cycled bSSFP data, for transceive phase mapping for the first time. We compared its accuracy, precision and time-efficiency with conventional SE and bSSFP techniques. Additionally, we reconstructed conductivity maps based on these techniques. We found that bSSFP and PLANET were as accurate as SE, but more precise. Also, bSSFP was the most time-efficient. Nevertheless, banding artefacts corrupting bSSFP transceive phase were, instead, intrinsically removed by PLANET. PLANET had clinically acceptable scan-time and was generally more suitable for conductivity mapping.
