Abstract
Three waveguide modes propagate in a 9.4 T whole-body scanner compared to only two modes at 7 T. While three modes are still insufficient to homogenize the B1 field across larger volumes, a time-interleaved acquisition of two complementary RF shims (TIAMO) and the subsequent sum-of-squares reconstruction of the single images is suitable to achieve whole-brain coverage without signal dropouts. Using simulations, we show that excitation inhomogeneity (max-to-min ratio) can be reduced by a factor of 2 (4) compared to CP mode. Finally, void-free whole-brain traveling-wave MRI at 9.4 T is demonstrated in vivo using a compact, adjustable 3-port antenna.
