SNR in hyperpolarized 13C MRI is often limited by the low sensitivity of the receive RF chain at the low Larmor frequency of 13C. In this study we present an RF transparent (non-metallic) cryostat designed for small animal imaging, which allows a coil temperature of 88 K, with a coil-to-sample distance below 3 mm. Performance of the cryostat equipped with a 30 x 40 mm2 13C surface coil (3 T, 32 MHz) was tested and 3-fold SNR gain over room temperature coil was achieved.
