Evaluation of a 64 channel receiver relative to a 32 channel receiver shows
that gains in parallel imaging performance for SMS/MB of 40 to 60% is feasible,
such that, highly desirable, single-shot, multislice, whole brain coverage with
<1s TR and 1mm or better isotropic resolutions would be achievable at 7T.
