A multislice method for measuring relative coupling between elements of a parallel transmit (PTx) array and conductive structures such as guidewires at multiple internal locations. Fast 2D image slices are used to measure the relative coupling along the guidewire inside a large phantom. This is useful during conditions where the coupling modes can only be measured from within the object volume and where current sensors cannot be placed. Such conditions exist in large phantoms and can exist in humans.
