We have designed, built, and tested a miniature four element linear surface coil array for high resolution imaging of human prostate. The prototype coil has demonstrated a factor of 2 increase in SNR near the array, over a single coil equal to the size of the array. In addition it is possible to perform parallel imaging with this array.
