In this study, we build an optimized 32 channel head-neck coil array to improve the weak SNR of area behind cervical spine from the previous designed neck-coil array. Two of the original eight neck coils is place to the area near scruff with a new structure. Comparing the optimized 32-channel head neck coil with the previous: imaging test has improved 63% higher than the previous coil array. For g-factor measurement, optimized neck coil array is the same as the previous one. The results indicate that the optimized coil array is better for neck imaging.
