Instead of using single coil elements as basis for RF shimming, we propose to use eigenmodes, which can be sorted by efficiency w.r.t. average B 1 vs. power or global SAR. By using just most efficient modes, we inherently achieve a good compromise between homogeneity and power/SAR in a direct approach instead of a time-consuming traditional L-curve evaluation.
