We designed and built a quadrature-birdcage/ 47Rx head coil array for accelerated images on 3 T MRI. A 32-channel commercial head coil was used as a comparison. The inverse g-factor images and accelerated anatomical images both show that the 47-channel head coil has better acceleration ability. EPI images and cerebrovascular images further verified that the 47-channel head coil is capable of human’s brain studies.
