Fluorine magnetic resonance imaging is a non-invasive background-free MRI approach to image infiltrating monocytes. The transfer of 19F MRI into large animals is needed for both method validation and the development of clinical applications. In this study, we have developed an 8 transmit/ 8 receive coil array tuned to 115.9 MHz (at 3 T) and developed a detachable 19F coil system for cardiac and thoracic MRI in pigs.
