Implementation of wireless communications in an MRI scanner will reduce the complexity of the scanner by decreasing the number of wired connections and connectors. To enable wireless communication in the scanner, a new RF coil design is proposed which allows RF currents at the Larmor and wireless data frequencies to flow on the same coil element, thus enabling simultaneous MRI image acquisition and wireless data transfer with the same coil.
