A novel open design 30ch transceiver head coil without using a local RF power source is proposed. Each coil element has no detuning circuit, couples to the system whole body coil inductively, and generates a uniform B1+ field in transmit mode. The same coil element also acts as a typical phased array element in receive mode. The transceiver feature of the coil may benefit the SAR demanding simultaneous multi-slice (SMS)/multi-band (MB) and high-resolution imaging and still keep the clinical friendly openings. In addition, the same coil element approach simplifies the coil circuit and improves the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR).
