We observed a propagating wave of displacement current on a continuous high dielectric constant (HDC) helmet at 10.5T with an eight channel dipole array in CP mode. As a secondary current source of B1, the distribution and phase retardation of the displacement wave on the helmet leads to an interesting problem for utilizing HDC material for B1 enhancement. We extracted the B1+ field originated by the HDC helmet by subtracting the primary field (within the human head model without helmet) from the total field (field in the presence of the helmet).
