A highly uniform magnetic field (B0) is typically required to generate MR images. In the original STEREO (for STEering REsonance over the Object) method, spatial variations in B0 are compensated by adjusting pulse amplitudes and frequencies in a temporal manner. Here we present a novel design of a limited set of well-defined multi-coil (MC) arrays that can optimize magnetic field distortions across the object of interest.
