Optimization Of A Boundary Element Approach To Electromagnet Design With Application To A Host Of Current Problems In Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Chad T. Harris
Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has proven to be a valuable methodological approach in both basic research and clinical practice. However, significant hardware advances are still needed in order to further improve and extend the applications of the technique. The present dissertation predominantly addresses gradient and shim coil design (sub-systems of the MR system).
A design study to investigate gradient performance over a set of surface geometries ranging in curvature from planar to a full cylinder using the boundary element (BE) method is presented. The results of this study serve as a guide for future planar and pseudo-planar gradient systems for ...
