Three different coil configurations were evaluated through simulation and experimentally to determine safe operating limits and evaluate subject size-dependent performance for prostate imaging at 7 T. The coils included a transceiver endorectal coil (trERC), a 16-channel transceiver external surface array (trESA) and a trESA combined with a receive-only ERC (trESA+roERC). Although the transmit B(1) (B 1+) homogeneity was far superior for the trESA, the maximum achievable B 1+ is subject size… CONTINUE READING
