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.
