With dedicated short-T2 techniques such as zero echo time (ZTE) imaging not only rapidly decaying signal from the sample but also from the RF coil (plastic housing, glue, solder flux etc.) is detected. To enable experimental examination of parallel imaging opportunities, a 1H-reduced eight channel array was designed. ZTE images of short-T2* rubber samples and PETRA images of human head could be acquired.
