B0 shimming with very high channel count encounters many implementation problems due to the size and current handling requirements of the shim units. Here we present an approach using distributions of ferromagnetic materials with controllable magnetic moments to generate shim fields. These units are small, require only low currents and can hence be implemented in large numbers into RF receive arrays.
