A loop coil design with homogenous B1 field and competitive sensitivity for 7T MRI was presented. The proposed coil was able to align on ROI unlike the asymmetric segmented loop coil design. The calculated B1 field uniformity and coil sensitivity of the proposed coil was superior to the asymmetric segmented loop coil as well as the loop coil with symmetrically distributed capacitors. The eight channels volume shaped loop array constructed by the proposed design loops was simulated. The proposed design will potentially help the construction of larger size loop arrays to cover more imaging volume at 7T and higher.
