A toroidal transceiver enables high-SNR positive contrast visualization of conductive interventional devices such as guidewires and EP catheters. Effective device visualization can be achieved with very low transmit power levels (~12mW). Integration within a parallel transmit platform is a promising approach to RF safety during interventional procedures.
