An improved array-compressed parallel transmit pulse design is proposed and validated to optimally connect transmit arrays with a large number of elements to a few transmit channels. It is further demonstrated to achieve better performance with array-compressed coil designs than conventional designs for multiband RF shimming for human brain imaging and 3D spatially selective excitation for human occipital lobe imaging.
