Theoretical and experimental evaluation of detached endcaps for 3 T birdcage coils.

Abstract:

The use of detached endcaps for 3 T birdcage coils was investigated both theoretically and experimentally. Finite difference time domain analysis, along with workbench and MRI techniques, were used to map the radiofrequency (RF) B(1) distribution along the coil axis with and without an endcap. Without an endcap the measured B(1) value at the service end of the birdcage was only 45% of the value at the coil's center. This was improved to 85% with a detached endcap of maximum achievable diamete...
