The purpose of this work is to demonstrate the design and use of modular coil arrays that allow highly accelerated (R=8) 2D SENSE to be exploited in providing high diagnostic image quality for 3D contrast-enhanced MR angiograms in multiple vascular territories across a broad range of patient sizes. Volunteer and patient studies were conducted in the calves, feet, hands, brain, thighs, and abdomen. Results demonstrate high diagnostic image quality.
