Pediatric MRI is an important tool for clinical diagnosis and research. It demands high spatial resolution and short scan time to increase success rates. To obtain high resolution images within resonable scan time, a dedicated 24-channel head and spine coil array was designed and fabricated for patient under 3-year-old in this work. Compared to a commercial 24-channel head and neck adult coil, the proposed coil offers higher resolution, image quality and shorter scan time in patient studies.
