The iPRES-W AIR coil is a highly novel RF coil design that can simultaneously perform image acquisition, wireless communication, and wirelessly controlled localized B0 shimming. In addition, the iPRES-W AIR coil benefits from all advantages of the recently unveiled AIR coil technology, which offers a flexible and ultra-lightweight coil for increased patient comfort and freedom in overlap positioning between coil elements without degrading the performance. This technology has enormous potential to improve image quality, spatial fidelity, diagnostic accuracy, and patient comfort in a wide range of MRI applications.
