Separating transmission and reception of signals can significantly boost SNR of 31 P signals, therefore we developed a 7-channel 31 P receive-only array that could be used with a detunable 31 P birdcage, which was inserted into an 8-channel 1 H head-coil. Signals could be enhanced further by exploiting the Nuclear Overhauser Effect as was shown in-vivo .
