Pediatric body MRI faces challenges of widely varying patient sizes, heterogenous imaging indications, and limited patient cooperation. These difficulties are compounded by receiver array coils that are often mismatched to patients’ size. In this work, we develop a novel light-weight flexible coil array that can be placed on a patient, and combined with a high-density posterior array and determine feasibility of clinical use in a pediatric setting. The resulting coil is well received in the clinic and yields good image quality.
