Neonatal brain MRI is widely used in clinical and research scans, in which images are acquired with adult head coils or special neonatal head coils. However, the performances of these coils are not very clear. In this work, we provided detailed comparisons of the signal-to-noise ratio with five noise measurement methods, among adult 8-channel head coil, adult 32-channel head coil, and neonatal 8-channel head coil. The results suggested that adult 8-channel coil has the highest signal-to-noise ratio.
