Using Singular Value Decomposition of optimal Stream Functions computed from a database of 100 B0 fieldmaps, a 13-channel cylindrical optimized Multi-Coil Array for shimming of the human brain is built and tested in an experimental setup for field measurement at 7T. Such measurements are compared to expected performances, serving as proof of concept for this novel design methodology. Performance is compared to what would be achieved by matrix multi-coil array designs patterned on a cylinder.
