A new peripheral angio coil with 36 integrated coil elements is presented for 3 Tesla. It will be shown why an overlap antenna design is preferable for these applications. The SNR and the iPAT performance from the overlap in comparison to the gap design were evaluated. Based on these results examinations on volunteers were performed.
