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.
