A multi-channel transmit, quadrature receive birdcage coil are optimized by using singular value decomposition (SVD) method. Compared with conventional transceiver quadrature birdcage, this coil has dramatically improved B1+ filed homogeneity and relative SNR, with slight penalty of increased average SAR.
