We present theory and experimental validation of reconstruction of all three components of RF vector magnetic field (B1 vector) in MRI. Using eight-orientation B1+ magnitude mapping, the magnitudes and relative phases of all Cartesian components of B1 vector can be unambiguously determined. The method is demonstrated on a phantom in a birdcage transmit coil with a standard B1+ mapping sequence at 3T. Our method can be used to validate assumptions in MR-based electrical properties tomography (MR-EPT) and specific absorption rate (SAR) modeling.
