A simple and efficient RF coil was developed for high-field MRI/MRSI studies of breast cancer. The coil, used as a transceiver, produced highly homogeneous magnetic field that extended beyond the coil and showed no obvious dielectric artifacts at 3T. It was successfully used to obtain imaging and spectroscopy data of human breast tissue.
