13C Endorectal Coil for 1.5 T and 3 T

13C Endorectal Coil for 1.5 T and 3 T


13C metabolic MR imaging is getting more and more exciting, especially since this technique is beginning
to be explored in human applications. Dedicated RF coils play an important role in this context. Tx coils
should pose high Tx efficiency for short RF pulses whereas an optimized SNR is needed during signal
reception. Additionally, 1H overview imaging or shimming needs to be available. Last but not least, high
requirements in safety and workflow are set due to application in humans.

  • dual-tuned 13C/1H for endorectal studies
  • receive-only
  • sealed coil head with soft coating
  • integrated 13C Urea calibration phantom
  • easy coil positioning
  • use of 1H body coil allowed
  • B0 field strength: 3 T
  • approximate housing measurements: 9.7 x 3.1 x 2.2 cm (coil head) / Ø 1.2 cm (coil neck)
  • as a prerequisite a dedicated 13C transmit coil is required
