A high critical temperature superconducting bulk magnet is a novel magnet for magnetic resonance imaging which has the advantage of its compactness. However, it is a difficult to achieve a homogeneous magnetic field sufficient for MRI because of the complicated magnetization process. In this study, we clarified the magnetization process by measuring the magnetic field distribution of the bulk magnet using a phase method based on 3D spin echo sequences.
