Knowledge of coil pattern is a key requirement in order to implement Transmit SENSE. However coupling between transmit array elements makes it complicated. RF current sources avoid effect of coupling thus each coil pattern can be obtained very easily. Transmit SENSE experiments using RF current sources were performed and results demonstrate that the current source can be used to drive elements in a Transmit SENSE array.
