This study examines the enlargement of the field of view FOV and the maintenance of a high signal-to-noise ratio SNR through the use of two high-temperature superconducting HTS resonators in a 3T MRI. Two Bi2Sr2Ca2Cu3Ox Bi-2223 surface resonators, each of 4-cm diameter, were used in a 3T MRI. Professionally made copper resonators operate at 300 K, but each Bi-2223 resonator, operated at 77 K and demonstrated a 3.75 fold increase in SNR gain. For the same scanning time, the SNR of the images of a rat’s brain and back, obtained using two small Bi-2223 surface resonators, was higher than that obtained using a single 8-cm surface resonator.
