Radio frequency probes for ultra-high field magnetic resonance imaging
Lee, Daniel James (2011) Radio frequency probes for ultra-high field magnetic resonance imaging. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
This thesis describes the design, construction and testing of a dome coil. The dome coil is hemispherical in shape and is intended to be used within a set of hemispherical gradient coils in a seven tesla magnetic resonance imaging magnet. The dome coil has eight independent elements and is designed to be used for parallel transmission and reception. It is shown that the dome coil produces less specific absorption rate than a conventional birdcage coil and is suitable for head imaging.
