Multi-mode or all-in-one intravascular MR probes that combine the functionalities of a tracking coil, an imaging coil, and an inductively coupled self-resonator (wireless marker) into one will be presented. Such probes may significantly reduce the risk of injury to the vasculature by obviating device switch during an endovascular intervention.
