Reduced field-of-view imaging enables accelerated acquisitions or finer resolutions than standard prescriptions. Outer volume suppression reduces signals outside a region of interest and attenuates aliasing energy when a reduced field-of-view is prescribed. We present a new design for B1-insensitive outer volume suppression and demonstrate its performance at 3 Tesla in a phantom and in vivo with cardiac-gated scans.
