We present a design for a simply constructed,
mechanically robust, and low cost MRI coil design that
is suitable for routine hyperpolarized
lung imaging in both adults and pediatric subjects. To
facilitate the clinical implementation of this coil
design an electromagnetic model was created to evaluate
B1+ homogeneity and SAR values.
