RF coils for multi-nuclear imaging require scanner-specific front-end interfaces that can limit their compatibility to one particular scanner platform. On the other hand, an intermediate interface that allows legacy coil compatibility with modern scanner architecture can be valuable in large institutions that operate a variety of scanners. In this work we describe the tools to build an intermediate interface with electronically controlled low-loss RF and DC signal pathways to provide a flexible means to route signals between the coil and scanner. While the tools are generally applicable to a variety of platforms, we focus on enabling compatibility between legacy multinuclear coils and a current scanner platform.
