High-density surface coil arrays have been used for attaining highly accelerated, high resolution images for brain, breast and cardiac MRI studies. Due to the layout and size of the coil elements, these arrays usually exhibit sensitivity variations across the field of view. In this study, we introduce a novel variable voxel size intensity correction method that reduces intensity variations across the image while keeping the desired noise profile.
