Here we present the design and show the process of building a high performance nonlinear monoplanar PatLoc gradient system (FlatLoc). This hand build system is dedicated for imaging the heart, abdomen and pelvis and was successfully implemented in our 3T whole-body scanner and first images were acquired.
