To achieve high SNR and high contrast for human MRI, ultra-high field can be applied. Considering the safety issues and the inhomogeneity of images at high fields, we aim to build a 5 T whole body MRI system. Based on this system, a transmit coil system for human head and neck imaging is designed and simulated. This work shows the preliminary studies with B1+ field and SAR assessments at 5 T.
