The Bloch-Siegert-effect imprints the rf-coil’s transmission field in the phase of the acquired signal. Consequently the measured amplitude information can be used to determine other MR-Parameter. A previously published sequence based on a CPMG spin echo train uses both information pathways and allows simultaneous acquisition of $$$T_2$$$- and $$$B_1^+$$$-maps. However, the formerly proposed method produces potentially erroneous $$$B_1^+$$$-map in inhomogeneous $$$B_0$$$-fields.
This work presents a method to reduce those errors by combining signal from different echoes. This allows a robust measurement of $$$B_1^+$$$-maps in inhomogeneous $$$B_0$$$-fields as present in high-field MRI with simultaneous $$$T_2$$$ quantification.
