Transmit-SENSE gives the opportunity to implement short excitation pulses with good flip-angle homogeneity at high field. Recently, a novel non-selective pulse design, referred to as kT-points, was presented which enables sub-millisecond pulses with excellent spatially uniform excitation properties over an extended volume. In this abstract, for the first time, application of this novel pulse design to human brain imaging at 7 Tesla is presented.
