Real-time control of the shim fields will allow for compensation of B0 field variations in the human body caused by breathing, cardiac pulsation, non-voluntarily motion, scanner drift etc. In this work the feasibility of real-time measurement and updating of the shim fields is examined and applied to real-time measurement and correction of the B0 field in the human breast at 7T.
