Eddy current effects on a clinical 7T-68 cm bore scanner

Published inMagma, vol. 23, no. 1, p. 39-43
Publication date2010

Eddy currents induced by switching of magnetic field gradients can lead to distortions in short echo-time spectroscopy or diffusion weighted imaging. In small bore magnets, such as human head-only systems, minimization of eddy current effects is more demanding because of the proximity of the gradient coil to conducting structures.
