To fully utilize Robotic assisted surgery in MR, it is
imperative that the RF coil design should be fully
integrated with a Head Fixation Device. The combination
of the RF coil, HFD, and Robotic surgery introduces
clinical requirements and needs that cannot be satisfied
with the design of a traditional RF coil that is
targeted for diagnostic MR Imaging. In this study, we
propose an new eight channel transceiver array coil that
is seamlessly integrated with an MR safe HFD and an MR
safe Robot by minimizing peak and average SAR, inside
the surgical field containing the RF field outside the
robot and optimizing image quality and SNR using EM
simulation results and verifying the results with
measurements on a prototype coil.
