Research Projects: 

Triangular Array development

Transmit array coils are an essential tool for parallel transmission at high field. In a typical encircling array, neighboring elements can be decoupled by various means, but it is more difficult to mitigate the often substantial coupling between next nearest neighbor coils. We describe an 8 channel Transmit-Receive (TxRx) array consisting of triangular elements which allow for capacitive decoupling of neighbors, and inductive decoupling of next nearest neighbors, resulting in a highly decoupled array which retains the transmit efficiency of a large surface coil loop element.
