We have designed, built, and tested a miniature four
element linear surface coil array for high resolution
imaging of human prostate. The prototype coil has
demonstrated a factor of 2 increase in SNR near the
array, over a single coil equal to the size of the
array. In addition it is possible to perform parallel
imaging with this array.
