this work the design of SPINS excitation pulses has been expanded for use in
TSE sequences and was compared to dynamic RF shimming using DSC in a standard
T2w TSE sequence. We have demonstrated homogeneous 90 degree
excitation, but in itself this was not sufficient to make TSE images uniform.
Manipulating the refocusing pulses (using DSC) remains a necessity.
