Abstract

In this work, a nested array of 8-transmit elements was developed and combined with a 32-channel receive array for imaging the human brain at 7T. This setup can be used in the single channel and parallel transmit mode of the Siemens 7T scanner. The transmit array was designed to make the setup less claustrophobic and provide an open feel, benefitting fMRI and patient studies. The transmit performance of this setup is presented here.
