We present a method to minimize signal intensity variations observed when performing balanced steady state free precession imaging in non-uniform B0 and B1+ fields. This is achieved by harnessing parallel transmission, with RF shims calculated in order to produce the most uniform signal for the desired tissues given measured B0 and B1+ field maps.
