We designed a geometrically adjustable 16 channel transceiver head Loop-Dipole (LD) array which allowed for variation in element placement. Functionality was established without inter element decoupling circuitry. We simulated the resulting 16-channel LD array and compare to 8 channel dipole only and 8 channel loop only configurations. Finally we acquired in-vivo porcine images from a 10.5T whole-body imaging system to demonstrate principle functionality.
