Close form-fitting and adaptation of the RF coil array to the target anatomy are key for obtaining high SNR. We combine ultra-flexible coaxial coils with a modular setup to achieve form-fitting by coil flexibility and adaptive coverage of the assembled array through modularity. In this work, the robustness of the coil characteristics upon reconfiguration of three modules in different array arrangements, was investigated and demonstrated its feasibility without compromise in coil performance.
