The concept of PatLoc (parallel imaging technique using localized gradients) provides a method for parallel imaging by using nonlinear Spatial Encoding Magnetic fields (SEMs). Matrix gradient coils may allow one to generalize PatLoc encoding by using almost arbitrary SEM configurations. In this abstract we show how matrix gradient coils can be used to generate sinusoidal SEMs and demonstrate a possibility of image reconstruction over an extended field of view.
