CHAPTER 8

Electromagnetic Modelling

The efficiencies of the designs of the different coils used to produce the static, gradient, and radiofrequency magnetic fields, as well as assessing the various interactions between these fields and the subject being imaged, are fundamental to the performance and safety of MRI. Here we review the basic field equations for these types of interactions and how they can be used to simulate MRI performance and safety.
