Comparison and evaluation of mouse cardiac MRI acquired with open birdcage, single loop surface and volume birdcage coils.

Abstract

Although the quality and speed of MR images have vastly improved with the development of novel RF coil technologies, the engineering expertise required to implement them is often not available in many animal in vivo MR laboratories. We present here an open birdcage coil design which is easily constructed with basic RF coil expertise and produces high… (More)
