DREAM is an ultra-fast multi-slice B1+-mapping technique based on the single-shot STEAM sequence. To study noise and bias related to slice-profiles, DREAM B1+-maps at 3.75mm resolution were acquired at 7T in phantoms and in human brain with nominal flip angles (FA) between 20° and 90° of the two STEAM preparation pulses. B1+ was decreasing at actual FAs above 50°; noise became apparent at actual FAs below 20° reducing dynamic range. By varying the preparation FA, this reliable range (20°<FA<50°) is shifted over a B1+ range from 20% to 250%. The FA map is constructed from overlapping B1+ maps after thresholding.
