Dual tuned surface coil (31P and 1H) was designed and build to have high performance parameters for both channels. The coil was build to integrate into a Sentinelle Vanguard table for 3T Signa GE system. The ability to transmit on both channels simultaneously makes it possible to perform decoupling using the same coil. 1H imaging and 31P spectroscopy was demonstrated on the above coil.
