Abstract

Transient magnetic fields are generated by the gradient coils in an MRI scanner and induce eddy currents in their conducting components, which lead to vibrations, imaging artefacts, noise and the dissipation of heat. Heat dissipation can boil off the helium used to cool the super conducting magnets...
