Deuterium metabolic imaging (DMI) has been proposed as a means to probe glucose uptake and metabolism. It is expected that DMI will reveal important changes in cancer and neurodegeneration. We constructed a dual-tuned 7T 2H/1H array coil and assessed appropriate RF power limits by EM modelling. The coil performance has been assessed with phantom scans on a D2O-enriched agar phantom. We are now ready to start human in vivo scanning.
