An 8-channel transmit coil and 32-channel receive coil were developed for use in a 7T head-only scanner. The limited radial space allotted for an RF coil in a head-only scanner presents design challenges that can affect coil performance. Further complexity arises when designing the coil to be practical for patient studies and routine scanning. These challenges and their solutions are discussed in this study, along with an evaluation of the coil performance.
