A 15-channel array coil has been developed for our centre by a coil manufacturer for the purposes of awake behaving macaque fMRI. Here, we evaluated the imaging performance in vivo and on phantoms. Compared to a 4 channel flexible coil, we found significant improvements in SNR and tSNR both in vivo and in phantom studies. Furthermore, we demonstrate the feasibility of multiband and in-plane accelerated acquisitions, up to a multiband factor of 6 with in-plane acceleration of 2.
