A Dual Series (DS) Composite Right/Left Handed (CRLH) Microstrip Transmission Line (MTL) coil for MRI was designed and verified in a commercial 3T Scanner. According to metamaterial theory, we demonstrate the existence of the right-handed leaky mode to be in the UHF region. For design proposes we propose an equivalent circuit parameter extraction method and demonstrate that the phase velocity of the DS-CRLH MTL coil’s guided mode is located in a fast wave region.
