A ladder and overlapped phased array coils were constructed with the same number of channels and overall dimensions to see how much of a SNR performance difference there was between the two coil construction techniques. The results show that between 2 and 12 cm within a cylindrical phantom the difference between SNR was less than 3%. With negligible performance difference the ladder array can be a viable alternative to overlapped arrays if a simpler coil construction process is desired.
