Our aim is to fabricate custom-made (e.g. bespoke) tailored flexible coils that can fit to a wide variety of patients and anatomy, thus improving sensitivity and signal-to-noise. Utilizing advances in printed electronics, we present a new technique for designing and fabricating flexible MRI receiver coils. These coils are printed on cloth-like mesh substrates using a screen printing technique. All components are processed from solution and printed onto several plastic mesh substrates.
