7T cardiac MRI is a novel field with the potential to increase the physical sensitivity and diagnostic value of the clinical cardiac images. Multiple elements transmit/receive phased array coils in combination with parallel transmit RF-technology allow for an improvement of the image quality at ultra-high-field (B0≥7T) field strength. In this work, we present initial experience with a new commercial 8Tx/16Rx thorax array coil operating in a “pTX-Compatibility Mode” of the scanner for cardiac MRI at 7T.
