RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES A number of recent reports in the MRI literature have established that substantial signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) gains can be achieved with small samples or low resonance frequencies, through the use of high-quality factor high-temperature superconducting (HTS) RF receive coils. We show the application of HTS coils to the imaging of human subjects with improved SNR compared with copper coils. MATERIALS AND METHODS HTS coils were constructed from 7.62-cm YBa2Cur3O7-delta… CONTINUE READING
