In this study, a new simple Fourier domain based analytical expression is proposed for the Bloch-Siegert phase shift based B1 mapping method. With this new expression off- and on-resonance effects can be understood more easily due to the Fourier domain relation. It is shown that |B1+| can be obtained more accurately by the aid of this expression for short pulse durations and offset frequencies.
