Conventional high density phased-array head/neck coils are designed to tightly conform to head/neck region to increase SNR and accommodate higher acceleration, which in turn limits space and their use for larger patients. This study shows results for two different universally sized AIR (Adaptive Imaging Receive) neck/cervical spine coils combined with a 48-Channel head coil to provide higher SNR and improved acceleration compared to a conventional coil. 3T MRI setups to image the head/neck, carotids and cervical spine were designed and constructed. Phantom measurements and high-resolution in vivo imaging were performed to demonstrate design performance.
