In this work we discuss the development of a 9.4T, 8-channel actively detunable small animal transceive volume array, capable of operating in transmit and/or receive mode. All individual coil elements are actively detunable for operation with independent receiver coils. A prototype was constructed and tested in a Bruker 9.4T Biospec MRI system. Experimental results presented herein demonstrate the potential of the design.
