Inversion Recovery prepared bSSFP sequence is used to quantify T1 and PRFS simultaneously based on a phase sensitive bSSFP readout. This technique allows for temperature mapping in both adipose and aqueous tissues at the same time. The feasibility of this method is shown with means of a cooling down experiment of a heterogeneous phantom. B0 drift correction is performed based on neighboring voxels in the fatty tissue.
