Fast Prototyping of Near-Field Antennas for Magnetic Resonance Imaging by Using MoM Simulations and 3D Printing Technology

Near-field antennas are critical to the performance of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Unlike conventional antennas designed for far-field radiation, there are rather strict geometric requirements, such as conformity and symmetry. We present a fast-prototyping approach that combines accurate electromagnetic simulation and 3-D printing technology, in order… CONTINUE READING
