Body imaging exams are increasingly growing as a part of total clinical MRI exams at lower field (<=3T) and should translate towards UHF imaging because of its excellent promises. Thus, there is a critical need to investigate advancing MR body imaging (kidney, liver and pancreatic) at 7T. The goal of this study is to introduce a new 32-ch Tx array design that; similar to head coils, is capable of producing bright centers inside the torso at 7T using its CP mode.
