The ultrahigh field 15.2 T Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is characterized by high magnetic flux density (B1) sensitivity and uniformity. Therefore, it is mainly used for small animal images requiring high resolution. Generally, surface coils are used to obtain high B1 sensitivity to target brain at small animal MRI, but occasionally there is insufficient coverage to cover all of the Region of Interest, so that the desired information may not be obtained. In this study, we propose a coil with wider coverage using inductively coupling by adding dual wireless coils to one channel transceive primary coil at 15.2 T.
