This work presents a new shielding method capable to reduce E-peak field values by minimizing the infinite norm of the induced current density. The target volume (“organ”) is surrounded by a conductive surface “shell” where the infinite norm of the induced current density is minimized thereby producing a uniform distribution of the E-field inside the target volume and its surrounding. The method was effectively applied in the design of a whole body gradient coil with E-field control. E-field reduction larger than 10% are registered in a human phantom model. Further reductions in E-field is possible by compromising the coil performance.
