Here we report on a design and initial tests of a single-channel multi-coil array. As the name of the array suggests, this system will provide an efficient and simple way of using multiple coils on a single channel scanner. This has a significant cost advantage over multi-transmit channels. SCMC arrays would be beneficial to use when there is perfusion and/or T1 . One such case identified is white and gray matter measurements with hyperpolarized xenon.
