Coils that increase the SNR for MRgFUS treatments are
very important. More signal-to-noise ratio can give
better temperature measurements which increases the
treatment efficacy and safety. This work describes the
design and testing of a 9-channel radio-frequency coil
array designed for abdominal magnetic resonance guided
focused ultrasound research in large animal models.
