A new dual-tuned RF coil technique based on common-mode and differential mode (CMDM) was proposed for high field multi-nuclear MR applications. The proposed CMDM coils combined with magnetic wall decoupling, a broadband decoupling technique, may be advantageous in designing high field double-tuned coil arrays for parallel imaging applications.
