A cervical spine array coil with a volume transmit coil for 7.0 Tesla was constructed and tested. The coil uses one partially shielded birdcage volume transmit coil for generating uniform excitation throughout the cervical spine region and an array of sixteen loop coils for receiving. Initial volunteer imaging demonstrated good coverage and uniformity along cervical spine.
