An open, biplanar volume RF coil was built and tested as a transceiver with a homogeneous B1 at 4.2 MHz. We demonstrate its feasibility and performance in a low-field, open biplanar magnet. While giving good sensitivity, this geometry provides easy access to the object from multiple sides. In addition to simpler positioning of patients, this potentially opens the way for improved MRI applications where access is primarily required such as interventional MRI.
