Simulations are presented of a negative-permittivity metamaterial bore liner designed to perform volume excitation at 200 MHz. The liner offers performance comparable to that of birdcage coils in terms of both field homogeneity, sensitivity and SAR, while allowing operation at frequencies beyond those where birdcage coils operate reliably.
