Electromagnetic field simulations were performed at 0.345T and 1.5T to find an advantageous RF coil design for typical scanners in MR-guided therapy. Hence, different birdcage coil designs were characterized and compared with one another with respect to their corresponding transmit and receive field characteristics.
