We present a technique for generating an arbitrary spectral profile by using multiple-acquisition bSSFP. Multiple phase-cycled bSSFP images with increasing TRs were acquired and Gram-Schmidt orthogonalization was applied to spectral basis functions to generate an orthonormal basis. This generated orthonormal basis was used to approximate an arbitrary spectral profile by using linear combinations of the calculated basis functions. A variety of spectral functions were simulated and used as a template to approximate spectral profiles in water and fat phantoms.
