Carotid MRI imaging can be vital in preventing heart disease and stroke but is difficult due to variable neck anatomy. Traditional rigid coils have a hard time achieving a close fit on all patients which can result in SNR loss that is essential for delineating the thin vessel wall. We designed and implemented an 8-channel flexible coil by incorporating the resonators into tailored cloth sleeves with integrated semi-rigid skeletons and a head cradle that provided the means for straightforward patient positioning and comfort, and a contoured fit for high SNR.
