We have constructed a7T transmit-and-16-channel receive array breast coil for Siemens Magnetom 7T scanner. Comparison of in vivo volunteer images with a commercially available 4 channel breast array coil at 3T showed significant advantage of the 7T breast array coil with its ultra high spatial resolution, which is critical to the early breast cancer detection.
