A single 2D acquisition with RF tagging prepulses is used to generate both B1 maps and B0 maps. It has previously been shown that RF spatial tagging in conjunction with k-space data processing yields a rapid method for 2D B1 mapping. Now it is shown that the same acquisition can simultaneously yield 2D B0 maps without any increase in acquisition time or modification of the pulse sequence.
