A volume brain coil has been developed that allows the upper half of the coil to reside inside a focused ultrasound brain transducer. The upper half is inductively driven by the lower coil half obviating the need for electrical wire connections across the membrane into the acoustic water path. The coil transmits in the local region of the head reducing total SAR from a whole body coil and improves signal to noise ratio and temperature uncertainty by 300%
