MRI plays an important role in diagnosing the diseases of musculoskeletal tissues at different body parts. In this study, based on the target-field method, we proposed a kind of open multi-purpose RF coil with three-plane structure for musculoskeletal MR imaging with satisfied homogeneity and high SNR. The design can meet the need of various body parts and provide large joint movement region for dynamic evaluation. The imaging results have demonstrated the effectiveness and advantage of this proposed design. In the near future, it is believed that the coil can be applied for real-time imaging of joint movement under dynamic situations.
