Introduction: The operation of gradient coils typically involves large currents being driven in resistive copper wires. Consequently this can lead to considerable Ohmic heating of the gradient coils and their surroundings, including the shim coils and RF systems, which can result in gradient failure, image distortion or signal dropout. Of primary concern… CONTINUE READING
