Today, MRI coils can be made flexible and stretchable. Signals can be sent out of bore by optical or wireless links. Nonetheless, wearable digital coil arrays have not yet found their way into MRI although enhanced patient comfort and workflow can be expected. In this work we explore the feasability of stretchable coil arrays with on-coil digitization and optical transmission, and present a first implementation for wrist imaging.
