Todays MR imaging methods use low-order SH shapes or combinations thereof. Here we show that MR imaging does not rely on SH shapes and can also be achieved with random magnetic field shapes when analyzed by algebraic reconstruction. Magnetic fields for spatial encoding were generated with the multi-coil (MC) approach by a matrix of simple, circular coils.
