In this abstract, we conducted a clinical evaluation of a prototype lightweight, flexible pediatric RF Coil. We evaluated the image quality on phantoms, an adult volunteer, and four pediatric clinical patients. For the phantom scans, identical 2D GRE protocols were prescribed between arrays and scanners for study reproducibility and accurate image comparisons. For the pediatric clinical patients, different anatomical studies were clinically ordered. Each study was reviewed clinically and found to achieve diagnostic quality with excellent tissue contrast, coverage, and SNR.
