Simultaneous Transmit and Receive (STAR) requires high decoupling between the RF transmitter and receiver. Current methods for this include, but are not limited to: geometric isolation, active RF leakage cancellation and metamaterial decoupling. The presented method uses a passive, four-port, tunable canceller circuit to achieve upwards of 40 dB of isolation between a quadrature transmit coil pair and the single receiving coil for a 1.5T system.
