Dynamic contrast enhanced MRI (DCE-MRI) of the prostate has been shown to be a useful tool to detect and stage prostate cancer. Increasing parallel imaging acceleration will allow for better pharmacokinetic parameter estimation. Due to various acquisition constraints, the phase encode plane is typically misaligned with best supported plane for parallel imaging. Specialized receiver coils to support parallel imaging in this sub-optimal alignment have been developed and demonstrated.
