A pediatric focused 24-channel prototype pTx 7T knee coil consisting of an 8 channel stripline transceiver and a 16-channel close fitting receiver array is described. Initial comparison with an adult size knee coil indicates peripheral SNR gains and more modest - yet notable- gains for central SNR due to the favorable filling factor and form fitting receivers of the pediatric knee coil prototype.
