Quadrature or circularly polarized surface coil can improve by a factor of root mean square compared to surface coils that used for linear polarized. The profile of B1 field generated by QD surface coils depend on geometry of coil. Nevertheless, no comparisonal analysis for B1 field uniformity among various types of coil geometry was reported. In this study, QD surface coils such as two single (TS) coil and combination of single loop Helmholtz (SH) coil were compared in terms of signal intensity profiles at 1.5T.
