Transmit arrays and their applications must be robust in
positioning, transmit homogeneity, coil matching, and
required RF power. In this study, we investigate the
influence of coil bending of flexible transmit arrays on
homogeneity, required RF power and SAR. We present
B1+-shimming using flexible 8-channel local TX/RX arrays
for the human torso at 3T using fast B1+ mapping by
means of DREAM.
