Abstract

The goal of this project was to show that the Helmholtz coil architecture is viable for use in MRI systems. Based on DC simulations, we have determined the coil dimensions to accommodate the largest range of patients, fit in an MRI scanner, and have the best possible SNR. Through exhaustive bench testing, we verified that our coil was able to be tuned to human loads and exhibited expected behavior, supporting that this product should be pursued in the future.
