The use of a spatial-spectral pulse in the presence of a static non-linear shim gradient has been proposed for reduced FOV excitation, in particular for exciting thin disc-shaped regions at isocenter. In this work, we extend the method to excite regions at an arbitrary locations and of arbitrary slice thicknesses, allowing for accelerated 2D or 3D high-resolution imaging.
