Abstract

We describe the design and implementation of a unique coil for in-vivo rhesus macaque brain imaging in a stereotaxic device. The RF volume coil consists of a 2 turn solenoid and a saddle coil configured and fed in quadrature. Finite difference time domain method was used to design the coil. Images acquired show excellent homogeneity and SNR throughout the monkey's brain.
