A new highly flexible RF coil design is described. Individual coil elements are constructed by means of a proprietary process that yields low reactance and low loss conductors while being lightweight, flexible, and durable. Phantom data indicate that for similar coil geometries, the coils provide equivalent SNR profiles but do not suffer from design limitations due to minimum coil overlap requirements of conventional copper coil elements. In vivo data demonstrate that these coils can be fabricated onto highly flexible and thin support materials that closely comply with anatomic contours in challenging imaging sites such as the c-spine.
