Pediatric MRI is often performed suboptimally by the use of heavy, large, and relatively inflexible coil arrays that are designed and built for adult MR imaging. For the child, these arrays can be intimidating and uncomfortable, restricting breathing. For parents, they contribute to the stress of the exam. For pediatric caregivers for smaller children, the coils complicate placing medical support equipment. Here, we assess the use of screen printed flexible coil arrays for pediatric applications, focusing on clinical image quality and caregiver acceptance. We conclude that a flexible screen-printed MRI receive coil is likely to yield diagnostic image quality and be preferred to a traditional coil by patients, parents, and caregivers.
