conference paper description
A sixteen-channel array consisting of eight pairs of stacked loop and dipole antennas was simulated for head MRI applications at 10.5 Tesla. Remcom XFdtd was used to calculate isolation between loop and dipole elements modeled with a dielectric load with varying space between loop and dipole elements. A loop-dipole array assembly was simulated for a candidate element configuration with a head-shaped dielectric phantom.
