Coil compression was introduced as a mean to reduce image reconstruction computational complexity of data acquired with large coil arrays with negligible SNR penalty. Previous work using a different acquisition strategy (not a standard multiband EPI) suggests that coil compression has a negligible effect on fMRI time courses. In this preliminary study, the effects of our coil compression implementation on fMRI time courses is evaluated using different level of compression and a standard multiband EPI. The results suggest a negligible effects of coil compression on fMRI time courses.
