This work focuses on explorations into human magnetic resonance (MR) at ultrahigh magnetic fields (B0≥7.0 Tesla, f≥298 MHz). Current trends in enabling multi-channel radiofrequency (RF) technology tailored for MR in the low wavelength regime are presented with the ultimate goal to attain clinically acceptable image quality. Validation of RF coil performance, mapping and shimming of transmission fields together with RF power deposition considerations are presented. Early applications of… CONTINUE READING
