Hyperpolarized 13C MRI enables the investigation of metabolism of breast lesions for diagnosis and to monitor disease progression. Acquiring 13C MR images along with 1H MR images using a multi-nuclear RF coil enables accurate co-registration of the images, thereby providing complementary structural and functional images. In this work, we propose a design for multinuclear 13C-1H RF coil array for breast MR imaging, and assess the performance using both RF and MRI measurements. Both 13C and 1H MR images were obtained of using phantoms.
