Optimisation and acceleration of second-order dynamic shimming at 7T

Abstract:

Magnetic resonance imaging requires a homogeneous B0 magnetic field, however the field is often distorted by the presence of the subject. Techniques to homogenise the magnetic field, so called shimming, are commonly used. Conventional shimming methods homogenise the magnetic field once before scans. Dynamic shimming is an advanced method of updating shim fields during scans for homogenising the B0 magnetic field in small volumes, which improves field homogeneity to a ...
