At the last years ISMRM we proposed an RF coil optimization pipeline based on a mesh structure consisting of 50-Ohm sources and copper patches. This allowed us to compute the maximal possible SNR of a given mesh as well as the emulation of concrete coil geometries in post-processing.

In this work we present an analysis of body imaging at 7T with an appropriately chosen mesh size that can reach the UISNR. Furthermore the optimal current weights are analyzed to create a physically realizable coil that approaches the UISNR.
