Fixed Geometry 28-Channel Array for Full Head Coverage of Hyperpolarized 13C MRS

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingArticle in proceedingsResearchpeer-review

Abstract

We describe the design and performance of a 28-channel RF receive array optimized for human head 13C imaging at 3T. The array employs a fixed and symmetric cylindrical geometry to provide predictable prior information of the coil sensitivity profiles, which can be used to resolve practical challenges of hyperpolarized parallel imaging and to improve performance. The results show good SNR and spatial encoding of the different elements, with only small performance difference between the individual elements.
