Abstract

A new coil design for simultaneous multiple animal imaging based on the coaxial cavity is presented. The goal was to improve B1 field (radiofrequency magnetic field that is used to excite the spins) homogeneity, while retaining high signal to noise ratio (SNR) of the coaxial cavity coil. The difference in B1 field magnitude across the coil, measured experimentally as well as the one predicted on the basis of numerical calculation, is within 10%. The described design can be utilized to image 6 small animals simultaneously without great compromise in SNR.
