A 15-channel receive coil, in conjunction with a 2-channel transmit coil, was developed for imaging the common marmoset at 9.4T. The high channel count produced low geometry factors while accelerating in EPI acquisitions, thereby reducing geometric distortions with minimal impact on the SNR. This demonstrates the utility and feasibility of employing higher channel counts for functional imaging of the marmoset.
