Title
(EN) ELECTROMAGNET AND ASSEMBLY
Abstract
(EN)

An electromagnet of an electromagnet assembly for a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) apparatus. The electromagnet includes an annular coil that is configured to generate a magnetic field and has a first axially outer surface; a support element that is bonded to the first axially outer surface of the annular coil and is configured to mount the annular coil in the MRI apparatus; and a support structure comprising a pair of axially-directed support plates spaced apart from one another along a radial direction of the annular coil by a distance which is greater than a radial thickness of the annular coil forming a cavity therebetween, wherein the support element is received in the cavity and mechanically fastened to the support plates.
