Light-weight and flexible RF coil arrays are needed to obtain high SNR which is translated into shorter scan times and to increase patient compliance. Trans­mission line resonators or shielded loop resonators (SLR) are insensitive to the changes in geometry and form, since the tuning is determined by the length of the transmission line. In this study, we propose two parameters and a test setup to evaluate coaxial cables and relate this to the SLR performance. Modularity is demonstrated on facial coil that can be attached to the face masks.
