The high SNR provided by whole body 7T also provides enticing opportunities for ex-vivo imaging. However, such MRI systems are usually only equipped with a limited number of coils, rarely optimized for ex-vivo imaging. In this work, we leverage the new-found degrees of freedom provided by High Impedance Coil elements to create a versatile modular array-coil that can be re-configured in seconds to fit each sample optimally.
