Abstract

In theory, multidimensional pulses can be designed to be selective in any number of dimensions. In practice, available gradient power has enforced a limit to two dimensions. We show here that three‐dimensional π pulses are feasible on commercial imaging machines provided that the range of offresonance frequencies are limited.
