In this work, a RF transmit volume coil was designed to work in a MRI-Linac. Because of the novelty of this approach and the specific geometry of the magnet, specific constraints had to be accommodated. To ensure the reliability of the design, the behaviour of the coil was modelled in an electromagnetic simulation, and a prototype was built in a mock-up of the magnet. Results converged to show that the homogeneity of the transmit field in the DSV are very uniform.
