Described herein is the design, construction, and testing of a head coil for imaging non-human primates at 10.5T. The coil is composed of an 8-channel decoupled dipole array for transmit and an 8-channel loop array for receive. We present preliminary transmit efficiency, SNR, noise correlation, and g-factor results for a phantom with immediate plans to acquire in vivo images. This coil is a proof of concept for higher channel count receive arrays of 16 or 24 loops for head imaging of non-human primates at 10.5T.
