Musculoskeletal imaging is one widely used MR application with advantages in exquisite details of anatomic structure, rich contrast options for various soft tissues and high diagnostic accuracy [1]. The SNR gain of high field MRI can further help extending such applications as magnetic resonance knee imaging. A 2-channel birdcage transmit and 24-channel loop array receive coil is designed and evaluated on the novel whole body 5T MRI scanner (United Imaging Healthcare, Shanghai, China, abbreviated as UIH below). The imaging performance is compared with a 3T scanner and the results are discussed.
