A dedicated solenoidal RF coil for imaging of the larynx was developed for cylindrical MRI systems using a static magnetic field in axial direction. The coil consists of two flexible solenoidal windings entangling the cervix anatomy. Numerical and experimental evaluation demonstrates higher SNR for the region of the larynx compared with conventional neck coil designs.
