A Split-Ring-Shield is a metamaterial structure that operates as a magnetic shield and thereby increases the penetration of the B1-field of a dipole antenna into a phantom. However, due to increased sample resistance it cannot be used effectively with a conventional birdcage. As a solution, a multi-transmit birdcage coil is presented, which can be used with the SRS. Simulations indicate a 10% increase in SAR-efficiency compared to a conventional birdcage. This setup was constructed and preliminary images were obtained.
