Two major challenges for MRI of short-T2 tissues are creating large gradient strengths and avoiding signal contamination from hardware parts, in particular the RF coils. In this work, to enable short-T2 MRI with a dedicated insert gradient coil, an RF birdcage coil was designed with a) minimized background signal and b) optimized B1 field to prevent aliasing associated with the limited monotonic range of the gradient.
