Shunt, don't block: A New Approach to Dual Nuclear Coil Design.

Development of dual nuclear coils with high efficiency on both 1H and X remains a challenge. The advent of hyperpolarized 13C imaging and hyperpolarized rare gas imaging has provided impetus for developing such a coil. In this work, we report prototype 1H/13C surface coil that makes use of tune/match circuits augmented by high performance shunt notch filters constructed from hybrid transmission line circuits. In this design, all conductive elements in the utility region are simultaneously resonant with high efficiency on both 1H and X. The design may be extended to both volume and array coils for most 1H/X pairs.
