Gradient Coil Design Considerations, Manufacturing & Limitations

Richard W. Bowtell1

1University of Nottingham

This presentation will describe the parameters that characterise the performance of the gradient coils which are used to generate magnetic fields that vary linearly with position in MRI. The methods for designing cylindrical gradient coils, including the incorporation of active magnetic screening, will then be described, along with boundary element methods that can be used to design coils on any surface. The important elements of coil fabrication will also be considered.
