A magnetic resonance apparatus has an integrated gradient and radio
frequency coil unit that includes at least one antenna rod with a
conductor and a gradient coil unit. At least one electrical connection
exists between the conductor and an electrical contact region arranged at
an adjoining region of the gradient coil unit. The electrical connection
is formed by a flexible circuit board that is electrically connected both
with the conductor and with the contact region. Such an electrical
connection of the antenna rod is insensitive to strong vibrations.
