Paper Abstract

Optimal specialty RF coils have always been desirable for their high signal to noise ratio in today's magnetic resonance imaging applications, such as breast imaging. A technique based on the least square field error minimization for designing a hemispherical RF coil that yields an optimal field homogeneity is presented.
