Taking advantage of recent advances in printed electronics, we created a flexible receive coil that is nearly transparent to High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) energy. We fabricated the coil from solution using screen-printing, a high volume manufacturing technique. We discuss the performance of the coil and compare the printed components to traditional components with various imaging and acoustic power attenuation testing. We also demonstrate major steps toward clinical usability with the first phantom images - showing promise for use in MR guided HIFU therapy.
