Coil arrays with large number of receive elements allow improved imaging performance and higher signal-to-noise-ratio. The MR systems supporting these arrays have to handle an increased amount of data and higher reconstruction burden. To overcome these problems, data reduction techniques need to be applied, realized either by linear combination of the original coil data prior to reconstruction or by discarding particular data from unimportant coil elements.
