A detachable head coil with an aperture for MRI-guided
stereotaxic rat brain surgery was proposed in this
study. The distribution of B1 field was evaluated with
numerical calculation. The design of the detachable RF
head coil is capable of not only producing the
homogenous B1 field, but also providing a free operation
path for interventional instruments, which will enable
MRI-guided stereotaxic neurosurgery of the rat in vivo.
