In MR examinations that acquire the data at multiple different table positions it can be more efficient to perform the calibration steps, which are necessary to determine or compensate patient specific load, during continuous table movement. In this work reliable transmitter calibration results during continuous table movement with 50 mm/sec are obtained with a three RF pulse sequence that employs a flow compensated gradient scheme along the direction of movement.
