An 11-channel radio frequency phased array coil for magnetic resonance guided high-intensity focused ultrasound of the breast

Magnetic Resonance in Medicine, 03/19/2012

This work presents a dedicated 11–channel coil for imaging of the breast tissue in the magnetic resonance guided high–intensity focused ultrasound (MRgHIFU) setup without obstruction of the ultrasound beam and, specifically, compares its performance in signal–to–noise, overall imaging time, and temperature measurement accuracy to that of the standard single chest–loop coil typically used in breast MRgHIFU.
