A Dual-Tune Sodium/Proton Tx/Rx 14-channel Sodium and 2-channel Proton Array Breast Coil at 7T was constructed and tested. The coil was built using nested approach without using lossy traps or PIN diodes. The coil has a three-layer structure. Initial volunteer imaging results demonstrated that the coil had promising image quality on both sodium and proton.
