In this study, a custom-designed 8-channel monkey coil was made to match the specific stereotaxic instrument and also better fit the shape of rhesus monkey brain. In comparison with a commercially available coil array, monkey brain images acquired using the dedicated monkey coil array at 3T achieve better SNR, improved parallel imaging capability and higher spatial resolution.
