We demonstrate for the first-time a quadrature transceive wireless coil for 1.5T targeted breast MRI. The proposed concept features two volumetric resonators: metamaterial-inspired structure and Helmholtz coil. These coils are electromagnetically coupled to the body birdcage coil and interact with its magnetic field’s components, thus boosting body coil transmit efficiency, SAR efficiency, and receive performance for the targeted area of the human breast.
