In this work, we aimed to increase the throughput of ex vivo samples during overnight unattended sessions by designing a coil and setup accommodating up to eight whole mouse heads. Using our single channel MRI installation equipped with a gradient insert with a 60-mm diameter spherical volume (DSV), we considered a design based on the use of commonly accessible off-the shelf supplies and ease of sample preparation. Among the various structures examined, a dual litz structure electrically-fed through the mid-point of the rung proved to be the most electrically balanced and homogeneous coil throughout the length of the rung.
