Prediction of parallel transmission RF pulse power deposition into a patient is one of the principal challenges at ultra-high field magnetic strength. We introduced real time calibration system to predict the net power consequences of the parallel transmission RF pulse design before employing designed RF pulses into scanner. High accuracy was achieved in the power deposition estimation of designed RF pulses with respect to actual net power measurements.
