We have integrated a body RF coil tuned at the 31P frequency outside the patient tube in a 7T MR system for homogeneous B1 transmit and combined it with a 8 channel 31P receive array for optimal sensitivity. Imaging and B0 shimming is done with radiative antennas integrated in the receiver setup. With this setup, large field of view imaging and broadband 31P MRSI with high SNR can be obtained.
