It has been demonstrated that a receiving coil designed from HTS material with a dedicated preamplifier can significantly improve SNR of the obtained image at low fields, thus time-demanding signal averaging is no longer needed. From the obtained results, the HTS materials appear to be suitable materials for the construction of complex receiving coils for low field scanners and can also find utilization also in micro imaging at high field scanners.
