Typically, posterior with anterior array or Large/Medium MSK coils or endorectal coil are used for prostate and rectal imaging. These coils do not provide deep depth, high-resolution and acceleration images. A novel high-resolution flexible phased-array coil for Prostate, Rectal and Pelvis Imaging is presented. This coil contains a posterior base with two lateral flaps and one center flap with wire loops providing a light weight flexible conforming coverage to prostate, rectal and pelvis. This close fitting high density 50-Channel coil provides better diagnostic images and comfort. This coil also introduces new thin flexible materials including two thermoplastic coated thin fabrics.
