In this work, we explore the possibility of using the recently proposed highly undersampled 3D phase-cycled balanced Steady-State Free Precession (bSSFP) sequence trueCISS to generate on-resonant band-free bSSFP images at 9.4T. By applying the forward signal model, it is also possible to synthetically generate bSSFP images at higher flip angles, which would otherwise be impossible to acquire due to SAR limitations. Lastly, we show a maximum bSSFP signal intensity image of the brain using the trueCISS estimated parameter maps.
