Delta relaxation enhanced magnetic resonance (dreMR) is an emerging technology that utilizes an insert electromagnet to modify the main magnetic field as a function of time in an otherwise conventional MR scanner. In this study, we investigate the design and performance of insertable electromagnets suitable for performing localized dreMR imaging in human subjects. The two particular anatomical areas of interest are the head/neck, and the prostate; however, this approach may be extended to a variety of other application areas.
