With the guidance of our in-house analytical modeling tool that was developed originally for minimizing both electrical coupling and magnetic coupling , we designed a 7T 8-channel T/R array with robust decoupling performance for both head and cervical spinal cord imaging, and our 7T 8 channel array demonstrated robust decoupling performance for both head and cervical spine cord imaging in both simulations and experiments.
