Abstract A comparison of experimental imaging results obtained with linearly polarized and circularly polarized radiofrequency excitation and reception is presented. Simulation images in good agreement with the experimental scans are described. The simulations are calculated with a model in which a homogeneous, isotropic cylinder of lossy dielectric material and infinite axial extent is immersed in a uniform rf magnetic field perpendicular to the axis. It is found that with the usual linear… Expand
