The quest for high resolution MR have push the technology to miniaturization. Thus, microcoils have been used for imaging with very high resolution. Here, we have designed and constructed a fully integrated CMOS NMR transceiver containing an on-chip microcoil, integrated amplifiers and demodulator for the high-frequency MR signal. In the present work, the initial microimaging results of this fully-integrated NMR transceiver in a 14.1 T animal scanner are presented. The on-chip microcoil allows imaging with a spatial resolution down to 10 µm with an SNR of 64 and with an improvement in SNR/volume ratio of 150 compared to a 10 mm surface coil.
