We evaluate the performance both in simulation and experiment of two 10.5T head transceiver arrays. The first is a 16-channel monopole/dipole hybrid array (called the Mono-Dipole array for brevity). The second is a 16-channel monopole/HDC disk dipole array. (A combination of two 8-channel arrays: a monopole array and a high dielectric constant (HDC) disk dipole array). These novel coil designs were compared against a standard 16-channel stripline array to elucidate their relative benefits and drawbacks.
