Balanced steady state free precision (bSSFP) has various advantages, namely high speed, high SNR, motion insensitivity and eddy current compensation. However, due to the B0 inhomogeneity, the so called "banding artifact" occurs at certain frequency regions. In this paper, phase correction method for the bSSFP sequence is proposed utilizing B0 and T2 maps. As an application, acquired B0 insensitive phase maps are used to obtain artifact-free conductivity maps.
