An approximate analytic expression is calculated for the phase of the transverse magnetisation during the excitation period. A spherical Bloch equation is used to find this expression. Simulation results are in agreement with the analytic solution. This analytic solution can be used where the phase information is required and, therefore, may be used to improve the performance of imaging through optimal pulse sequence design.
