imaging (MRI) is a very important non-invasive modality for the diagnosis of
knee anatomy and pathology. The use of 7 Tesla systems for knee imaging can
provide higher signal-to-noise ratios (SNR) than lower field systems. In this
work, a novel 8-channel transceive open knee coil for dynamic musculoskeletal
(MSK) MR imaging of the knee is simulated and constructed. The open design
concept will facilitate the diagnostic and functional assessment of knee
injuries and pathology, and allow for imaging of a moving knee.
