This abstract provides a detailed understanding for loop coil resistance, a crucial component of SNR in the MR experiment. In comparison to existing models, the new model presented in this abstract includes more components which were often overlooked in the past and thus yields more realistic prediction of coil resistance at high field. The ability to characterize coil losses is the key for optimizing loop-based coil and array designs, and providing an accurate coil noise model in full-wave simulations.
