Traditionally, resonant coils are used for MR signal detection. In this work we present a novel approach for detecting MR signals by combining a non-resonant grid structure with resonant coil elements that are inductively coupled to each segment of the grid. S-Parameters were measured and imaging experiments were performed to evaluate coupling and imaging performance in phantoms.
