Title
(EN) Gradient coil arrangement
Abstract
(EN)

A gradient coil arrangement for use in a magnetic imaging system, the imaging system being for generating a magnetic imaging field in an imaging region provided in a bore. The coil arrangement includes a first portion having a substantially cylindrical shape for positioning in the bore, a second portion extending outwardly from an end of the first portion, the second portion being for positioning outside the bore and at least one coil for generating a gradient magnetic field in the imaging region, the at least one coil having a first part provided on the first portion and a second part provided on the second portion.
