A 3 Tesla 8-channel receive phased array for small anatomical features is presented in this abstract. The array uses a novel coil design integrating a balun into each coil element. Coupling and matching was assessed through network analysis. High-resolution imaging experiments were performed on a phantom and human fingers confirming high image quality and proof of concept.
