lot antennas have been widely used in communications because of their obvious low-profile nature. In MRI applications, the ability to ‘hide’ ancillary electronic components behind a shield containing a slot antenna could lead to interesting and very “clean” transmit antenna designs. Using the meander slot as elements for multi-channel coils allows for more compact multi-channel transmit coil designs with a shielded “clean” imaging area. This shielded imaging area provides a desirable environment for placing a receiver coil. More importantly, using meander slot coil elements can potentially allow for the design of multi-channel coils without the need of using matching and tuning networks or decoupling circuits. We believe this may significantly simplify the design of multi-channel transmit coils.
