This paper deals with the development of vertical and horizontal rows of rectangle surface coils in a cross-hatching called grid array. The purpose of this grid array is for unilateral resonance imaging. Each coil in the horizontal or vertical rows transmits and receives sequentially using switchable array configuration. The coils are tuned, matched, and decoupled to a 28.1MHz resonance using a matchbox pi-circuit with each coil. The results of this paper apply to quadrupole resonance imaging.
