The 2nd prototype automatic RF coil has been built with some major upgrades after we presented the feasibility of applying automatic tuning and matching in a multi-channel transceive RF coil at 7T in the last meeting. The scientific and clinical utility of multi-channel systems that enable parallel MR imaging will not be fully realized without the proposed automatic frequency tuning and impedance matching technology at ultra-high fields.
