To date, MRI is based on linear field gradients generated by dedicated X, Y and Z coils. Here, multi-slice Dynamic Multi-Coil Technique (DYNAMITE) MRI is presented in which all field gradients are provided by MC field modeling. The obtained image fidelity is identical to conventional MRI based on dedicated gradient coils. Comparable image quality is a milestone towards the establishment of purely MC-based MRI systems. With the gains of DYNAMITE shimming in performance and efficiency, the MC technology has the potential to replace spherical harmonic coil systems for specific applications.
