Manufacturing compact, miniature devices required for small samples imaging is still challenging. Here we investigate the feasibility of metalyzing 3D printing subtrates to develop a volume coil dedicated to both small in-vitro / ex-vivo samples and in vivo mouse brain imaging. In order to validate the use of metalized 3D printed process to build MRI coil we build one reference Helmholtz coil made with copper tape wrapped around the coil mount and one with the same geometry using this new technology. First demonstration on bench and in imaging that copper metallization technology can be performed to build volume coil.
