PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to develop a targeted volumetric radiofrequency field (B(1)(+)) mapping technique to provide region-of-interest B(1)(+) information.
MATERIALS AND METHODS: Targeted B(1)(+) maps were acquired using three-dimensional (3D) reduced field-of-view (FOV) inner-volume turbo spin echo-catalyzed double-angle method (DAM). Targeted B(1)(+) maps were compared with full-FOV B(1)(+) maps acquired using 3D catalyzed DAM in a phantom and in the brain of a healthy volunteer. In addition, targeted volumetric abdomeninal B(1)(+) mapping was demonstrated in the abdomen of another healthy volunteer.
RESULTS: The targeted reduced-FOV images demonstrated no aliasing artifacts in all experiments. Close match between targeted B(1)(+) map and reference full-FOV B(1)(+) map in the same region was observed, with percentage root-mean-squared error <0.4% in the phantom and <0.8% in the healthy volunteer brain. The abdominal B(1)(+) maps showed small B(1)(+) variation in the kidneys and liver from the healthy volunteer.
CONCLUSION: The proposed 3D reduced-FOV catalyzed DAM provides a rapid, simple and accurate method for targeted volumetric B(1)(+) mapping and can be easily implemented for applications related to radiofrequency field mapping in small targeted regions.
