An 8-channel transmit coil and 32-channel receive coil
were developed for use in a 7T head-only scanner. The
limited radial space allotted for an RF coil in a
head-only scanner presents design challenges that can
affect coil performance. Further complexity arises when
designing the coil to be practical for patient studies
and routine scanning. These challenges and their
solutions are discussed in this study, along with an
evaluation of the coil performance.
