A novel transceiver wireless array coil that can be utilized for robotic assisted MR guided interventions and radiosurgery procedures was presented. The coil assembly consists of a posterior unit comprising of eight channels transceiver array pattern and an anterior wireless transceiver loop array coil that is inductively coupled to the posterior part. The coil assembly generated a high uniform and sensitive B1+ profile over the entire hear without inhibiting valuable surgical space and compromising the sterile field. SAR calculations indicate that the presence of the anterior wireless transceiver loop array does not alter or enhance the SAR pattern behavior inside the human head.
