To improve signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and patient comfort, flexible coils need to be made of very light and flexible materials. In this study, a novel 24-channal ultra-light flexible receiver coil array was designed and constructed for human abdominal imaging at a 5T ultra-high field MRI system. The 24-channel ultra-light flexible coil showed much higher SNR and a better parallel acceleration capability compared to a 24-channel conventional receiver coil. High quality human abdominal images were acquired by using the 24-channel ultra-light flexible coil.
