Coils that increase the SNR for MRgFUS treatments are very important. More signal-to-noise ratio can give better temperature measurements which increases the treatment efficacy and safety. This work describes the design and testing of a 9-channel radio-frequency coil array designed for abdominal magnetic resonance guided focused ultrasound research in large animal models.
