It has recently been proposed to use non-linear gradient encoding fields in order to reduce peripheral nerve stimulation and to allow for spatially varying resolution in different areas of the FOV. An industrially built PatLoc gradient insert coil brings us in the range of single shot imaging. The aim of this study is to show the feasibility of spiral and EPI imaging.
