Highly flexible or wearable dual-tuned coil arrays appear to be good choices for increasing the SNR for both protons and X-nuclei and for improving patient comfort. However, complex couplings arise in a dual-tuned coil array. In this work, we have designed self-decoupled coils within a flexible, nested, dual-tuned array, in which impedances are redistributed to achieve high inter-element isolation.
