Brain imaging became one of the main applications in MRI. A high performance brain coil needs to have the receiving elements as close as possible to the ROI. Unfortunately with the big variation within the human population head sizes, the head coils are usually made to fit the 99 percentile of the people, therefore for smaller size people the coil could under perform. There are attempts to address different head size populations with appropriately sized coils. We propose to change the paradigm of a rigid head coil, but still accomplish the goal of one-size-fits-all coil the Adaptive Head Array (AHA).
