The RF receive coil array has become increasingly vital in current MR imaging practice due to its extended spatial coverage, maintained high SNR, and improved capability of accelerating data acquisition. The performance of a coil array is intrinsically determined by the current patterns generated in coil elements as well as by the induced electromagnetic fields inside the object. Investigations of the ultimate performance constrained by a specific coil space, which defines all possible current… CONTINUE READING
