A Simple Method to Calculate the Signal-to-Noise Ratio of a Circular-Shaped Coil for MRI

The introduction of the ultrafast imaging sequences has renewed the interest in development of RF coils. The theoretical frame of the SNR of MRI coils is a challenge because it requires a deep mathematical background to master the associated concepts. Here, a simpler method is proposed based on Legendre polynomials. This approximation method, together with… CONTINUE READING
