Most receive array coils are made of many various shapes of loop coils with different arrangements. In practice, the final goal for a good performance array coil is to find a combination of these loop coils such that improved optimal signal-to-noise ratio (SNR)1-3 and reduced parallel MRI g-factor3 can be achieved in the same time. Here we study four different loop coil arrangements for a head array coil. The simulation results shed some light on optimal loop arrangements and performance expectations.
