Optimized radiofrequency coil setup for MR examination of living isolated rat hearts in a horizontal 9.4T magnet.

Abstract:

PURPOSE: (i) To optimize an MR-compatible organ perfusion setup for the nondestructive investigation of isolated rat hearts by placing the radiofrequency (RF) coil inside the perfusion chamber; (ii) to characterize the benefit of this system for diffusion tensor imaging and proton ((1) H-) MR spectroscopy. METHODS: Coil quality assessment was conducted both on the bench, and in the magnet. The benefit of the new RF-coil was quantified by measuring signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), accuracy, and pr...
