7T MRI has potential for adding value in studies of infant brain and heart. In this study we introduce the first integrated high channel count receive array designed to enable both head and torso imaging of young infants at 7T. The array performance was evaluated in terms of noise correlation matrix, signal-to-noise ratio, and spatial coverage. The initial results are promising with the array providing a large coverage of the targeted regions in phantom. After further safety checking, the next step will be to conduct in-vivo studies, paving the way for future high performance infant examinations at 7T.
