Abstract

The use of specialized coils to improve signal-to-noise ratios in magnetic resonance (MR) imaging is an important innovation. The role of surface coils has not yet been well defined, but it seems likely that they will be routinely used for clinical imaging of the orbit, neck, and spine. Surface coils have important limitations that make other designs, such as 'closely coupled' volume coils, attractive for some applications, especially for limb imaging. With improvement in our ability to visualize anatomy with MR imaging, specialized radio frequency coils may provide new imaging capabilities for clinical problems that were not previously considered to be indications for diagnostic imaging.
