Transmit arrays and their applications must be robust in positioning, transmit homogeneity, coil matching, and required RF power. In this study, we investigate the influence of coil bending of flexible transmit arrays on homogeneity, required RF power and SAR. We present B1+-shimming using flexible 8-channel local TX/RX arrays for the human torso at 3T using fast B1+ mapping by means of DREAM.
