A detachable head coil with an aperture for MRI-guided stereotaxic rat brain surgery was proposed in this study. The distribution of B1 field was evaluated with numerical calculation. The design of the detachable RF head coil is capable of not only producing the homogenous B1 field, but also providing a free operation path for interventional instruments, which will enable MRI-guided stereotaxic neurosurgery of the rat in vivo.
