A new technique for parallel acquisition of magnetic resonance images is described. Two RF coils are time multiplexed into a single receiver channel, halving the effective image acquisition time with no degradation in signal-to-noise ratio. Noise filtering is performed with RF bandpass filters. In principle, the method can be extended to additional coils.
