GRAD

MRI Gradient coil designer and optimization engine (considers interactions with present scatterers, e.g., patients/implants and RF coils).

Gradient coils and virtual population (ViP) model.

Product description

MRI Gradient coil designer and optimization engine (considers interactions with present scatterers, e.g., patients/implants and RF coils). GRAD has been developed in colloboration with Prof. Blaine Chronik from UWO.

 

 

Features

  • Take into account uniform or realistic B0 distribution
  • Optimize current density and field homogeneity, minimize power and inductance

 

Applications

  • Design arbitrary shaped gradient coils
  • Calculate interaction (Eddy currents) in between gradient fields and other elements like gradient shielding, RF coil and shield, implanted devices inside the patient
  • Gradient coil safety evaluation with and without implant (nerve stimulation, vibration …)
