Abstract

MRI has proven to be a reliable means of breast cancer screening, superior in many ways to conventional screening methods. Reflecting the goal of the project sponsor, this project aims to design a mechanical housing concept that incorporates an existing multi-channel RF breast coil array concept. This included steps towards incorporating the necessary electrical and RF components in a design for a low profile, ergonomic housing as well as the development of design specifications that could be used by the sponsor and their engineers to eventually manufacture the breast coil and move it into the clinical MRI breast coil market.
