Traditionally, shim preemphasis filters to compensate for eddy current fields have consisted of a sum of exponentially decaying terms. It has recently been proposed to instead implement a non-parametric preemphasis filter based on the shim impulse response function. This can address features that are not captured with the exponential model, such as oscillatory responses. We here compared the two preemphasis approaches for higher-order dynamic shim updating. The non-parametric filter yielded an improved frequency response of the system and about 10 ms faster shim settling, as well as suppression of field oscillations after a shim step.
