A transmit/receive dielectric resonator antenna array has been designed for operation at 7 Tesla. By using very thin high permittivity material the inter-element coupling is very low, allowing small resonators to be placed very close to one another. An eight-element array has been simulated and constructed, and in vivo images of the extremities acquired.
