Abstract
SENSE parallel body imaging is difficult to realize at high field strength due to a lack of efficient body volume coils providing homogeneous transmittion. Alternatively, a transmit/receive quadrature half-volume coil can be employed for SENSE body imaging with multi-channel reception using frequencydegenerate isolated modes of the same half-volume coil. This type of coil provides efficient transmittion with sufficiently large region of homogeneity and improved reception profile as compared to receive surface coils. As proof of concept, this work presents results using an original open transmit/receive halfvolume quadrature TEM coil for SENSE human brain imaging at 4T.
