Previous studies on HTS coils can be put into two categories: tape surface coils and thin-film surface coils[1-4]. In this study, we built a whole new Bi2Sr2Ca2Cu2O3 (Bi-2223) superconducting volume coil (length of 8 cm) designed for magnetic resonance image of the mice whole body at Bruker 3T MRI system. The HTS volume coil has 2.3 folds higher than of the HTS volume coil at 300K for a mice body screen.
