In this paper, we describe the design of a novel 16-element coil for brain and neurovascular applications at 3T capable of SENSE in all directions. We demonstrate that in SENSE imaging, as well as in SENSE spectroscopic imaging, the high SNR and SENSE performances of this coil enables applications which otherwise would be impossible due to the long scanning time.
