Minimizing Hot Spot Temperature in Asymmetric Gradient Coil Design

Abstract

Heating caused by gradient coils is a considerable concern in the operation of MRI scanners. Hot spots can occur in regions where the gradient coil windings are closely spaced. These problem areas are particularly common in the design of gradient coils with asymmetrically located target regions. In this paper, an extension of an existing coil design method… (More)
