Abstract
The requirements for spatial uniformity of the radio-frequency magnetic field used in three-dimensional MAR imaging are discussed and an improved winding distribution for a saddle-shaped single transmitter-receiver coil has been developed and tested by computer simulation of the rf mag-netic field pattern. The use of flat local or "surface" coils for NMR imaging is also proposed. A. method for correcting such images for the apparent spin density differences caused by the extreme rf magnetic field nonuniformity has been developed and tested with phantoms and images of the human back.
