Magnetic Resonance Imaging Coils, Endorectal

Definition : Endoscopic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) coils designed for introduction through the rectum to obtain high-resolution imaging of the prostate, colorectal area, and/or cervix. These coils typically consist of isolated independent concentric spirals of conducting rings that resonate at a given radiofrequency; the coils are placed inside a dedicated probe allowing easy insertion. The probe is attached to an external unit for procedure control and contrast media infusion; endorectal coils usually need special interface devices and are compatible only one or a few specific models of MRI systems. Endorectal MRI coils are mostly used in the detection and staging of cancer tumors and other diseases of the imaged regions.
