In this work, we present a fluid suppressed Turbo-Spin-Echo sequence for ultra-high-field application. To obtain images comparable in contrast and homogeneity with 3T results, we replaced all RF pulses with universal parallel transmit kT-point pulses. During the imaging session, no pulse calculations or complex B1 shimming procedures are necessary, making this approach a promising tool for clinical application.
