To fully utilize Robotic assisted surgery in MR, it is imperative that the RF coil design should be fully integrated with a Head Fixation Device. The combination of the RF coil, HFD, and Robotic surgery introduces clinical requirements and needs that cannot be satisfied with the design of a traditional RF coil that is targeted for diagnostic MR Imaging. In this study, we propose an new eight channel transceiver array coil that is seamlessly integrated with an MR safe HFD and an MR safe Robot by minimizing peak and average SAR, inside the surgical field containing the RF field outside the robot and optimizing image quality and SNR using EM simulation results and verifying the results with measurements on a prototype coil.
