Investigation of multichannel phased array performance for fetal MR imaging on 1.5T clinical MR system
Quantitative Imaging in Medicine and Surgery, 12/20/2011Li Y et al.
Study results show that the proposed array is capable of increasing B1 field strength as well as sensitivity homogeneity in the entire area of uterus. This would ensure high quality imaging regardless of the location of the fetus in the uterus. In addition, the paralleling imaging performance of the proposed fetal array is validated by using artifact power comparison with torso array. These results demonstrate the feasibility of the 32 channel flexible array for fetal MR imaging at 1.5T.
