Optimal performance for neonatal brain imaging requires the receive coil to be as close fitting as possible, but this creates challenges for patient handling. Here, we developed a joint design of a 32 channel neonatal array and a baby transport and positioning system intended for examining babies up to 44 weeks at time of scan. The purpose of this was to implement a system to consistently gain high image quality in preparation for the developing Human Connectome Project (dHCP).
