Oxford Researchers have developed a new, simple, design of accessory MR surface coil which significantly enhances the quality and clarity of deep organ MRI images.
A new design of magnetic resonance imaging surface coil has been developed in which the location, size and improved homogeneity of the magnetic field within the, so called, “sweet spot” of the field coil have been optimised to enhance both the quality and clarity of MRI images of organs located deep in the human body. The device is suitable for both imaging and spectroscopy, which makes it particularly cost effective. In addition, it can be used with the more basic types of MR scanners that are only equipped to use a single coil.
Researchers at the University of Oxford have developed a radio frequency imaging coil that can generate improved images of deep lying organs, such as the heart, liver or kidneys, without significantly increasing the complexity and cost of the MR scanner required.
