Brain imaging became one of the main applications in
MRI. A high performance brain coil needs to have the
receiving elements as close as possible to the ROI.
Unfortunately with the big variation within the human
population head sizes, the head coils are usually made
to fit the 99 percentile of the people, therefore for
smaller size people the coil could under perform. There
are attempts to address different head size populations
with appropriately sized coils. We propose to change the
paradigm of a rigid head coil, but still accomplish the
goal of one-size-fits-all coil the Adaptive Head Array
