This study aimed to
develop a lump-element double-tuned common-mode-differential-mode (CMDM)
radiofrequency (RF) surface coil with independent frequency tuning
capacity for MRS and MRI applications. This CMDM coil maintained intrinsically
decoupled magnetic fields, which provided sufficient isolation between the two
resonators. The results from in vivo experiments demonstrated high sensitivity
of both the 1H and 13C resonators.
