The potential advantage of using high modes of a 12-rung birdcage coil for parallel imaging has been investigated. When 11 modes are incorporated, the acceleration factor can be up to 5 with average g-factor within 2. For certain number of channels, the optimized combination of corresponding modes can be obtained.
