To investigate the universality of using pre-optimized parallel-transmit (pTx) pulses with different RF coils for routine imaging, Universal Pulses and Fast Online Customized Pulses were generated using eight respective datasets from both a commercial and a self-built 8Tx/32Rx coil. The pTx pulse types were designed for both excitation and inversion pulses in a 3D MPRAGE sequence. For each coil, one subject was examined with all combinations of pTx pulses. All pTx pulses outperform CP pulses on the coil they were trained on. When using a different coil, Universal Pulses may fail, especially for inversion, whereas FOCUS pulses achieve robust homogeneity.
