MRI with Concurrent Excitation and Acquisition (CEA) was shown to be feasible by achieving 80 dB analog isolation between transmit and receive coils using an active decoupling method. In this work, active decoupling system was upgraded using pick-up coils for simultaneous recording of the transmit signals. Preliminary results for MRI of a human wrist are represented and discussed.
