I. Graesslin, U. Katscher, F. Schweser, M. Niemann, P. Börnert Philips Research Laboratories, Hamburg, Germany Introduction Due to the analogy between the design of spatially selective RF pulses and MR imaging [1], it is possible to adapt the methodology of parallel imaging [2, 3] for parallel transmission [4-6]. Thus, the RF pulse calculation can be performed via direct matrix inversion [4-6], which in parallel imaging has been used by, e.g., [2, 3]. On the other hand, the RF pulse calculation of parallel transmission might be performed via iterative methods [7, 8], which in parallel imaging has been used by, e.g., [9]. This paper discusses the iterative approach in some detail and compares the two approaches with respect to their running times for different scenarios.
