The surface coil which yields a higher signal-to-noise ratio only in small area can improve with multi-channel that each channel SNR is combined with a sum-of-squares method. This processing achieves an overall higher SNR in the region of interest (or field of view). In the present study, a 7-channel orbit array coil was developed for ophthalmic imaging. Image quality evaluation by using the designed orbit array coil was examined for imaging the eye, optical nerve, and ocular muscles with orbit.
