Coil arrays using smaller loop sizes allow increased signal close to the coil array. Such coil arrays with a large number of channels allow increased SNR across a large area of cortex, and accelerated imaging comparable to commercially available high-channel coils, with particularly good performance close to the coil array. These gains in SNR allow high-resolution (0.5mm isotropic) EPI
