A cryogenic coil and a dedicated cryostat for 13C human head imaging is developed. A 1.90-fold SNR enhancement over a room temperature coil is observed experimentally. To verify the retention of SNR enhancement in arrays, a 4-channel cryogenic coil array and another cryostat are also developed. The superior performance to a room-temperature array is confirmed experimentally.
