A wide variety of imaging strategies relying on
nonlinear gradient fields such as parallel image
acquisition, reduced field of view acquisition or curved
slice imaging have been presented recently. All these
techniques require a certain type of nonlinear gradient
field. Here we present a design of a shielded matrix
gradient coil and show field maps of prototype elements.
Greater flexibility of the achievable gradient field
shapes might be beneficial for all of the above
