High-permittivity materials are known to offer potential increases in the sensitivity of RF coils, increasing SNR or reducing SAR. Design guidelines are not straightforward, however, in part due to complex coil interactions. We here present a numerical method for the rapid (e.g. ~1 sec) assessment of dielectric materials positioned in a 3T torso receive array, enabling full exploitation of this technology.
