Recently, the use of an inductively coupled RF (ICRF) coil in catheter tracking has been introduced. As it was described, visualization of ICRF coil in all sequences and flip angles may be difficult. Here, we proposed a novel ICRF coil tracking method which enables separate visualization of the catheter and the body in one color-coded image by utilization of reverse and forward polarization modes of a receive-only birdcage coil.
