Abstract/Summary Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) has become a very important technique for the diagnosis of breast diseases. A dedicated radio frequency (RF) coil, capable of inducing a homogeneous magnetic field within a defined region of interest as well as receiving MRI signals with a high signal to noise ratio (SNR), is essential for high spatial resolution breast imaging. Close-fitting phased array (surface) breast coils were proposed and developed to improve the SNR and enhance the image quality [1-2]. However, because of the specific position of a patients’ breast related to the B0 field of a horizontal clinical MRI scanner, it is challenging to use conventional equal structured loop coils to induce a desired homogenous B1 field. More importantly, in the anterior-posterior area of the breast, little or no signal can be received by a loop coil. In this work, we present a novel structure which can improve both the quality of the transmitting B1 field and the efficiency of RF signal reception.
