A dedicated solenoidal RF coil for imaging of the larynx
was developed for cylindrical MRI systems using a static magnetic field in
axial direction. The coil consists of two flexible solenoidal windings
entangling the cervix anatomy. Numerical and experimental evaluation
demonstrates higher SNR for the region of the larynx compared with conventional
neck coil designs.
