Despite numerous improvements in MRI technology, the fundamental gradient hardware has always been designed to generate linear and orthogonal fields. This mould was broken with the advent of DYNAmic Multi-coiIl TEchnique (DYNAMITE), which uses non-linear and non-orthogonal B$$$_{0}$$$ fields for shimming and imaging. Besides vastly expanding the field shaping possibilities, this new technology also promises faster switching and lower eddy currents. For widespread uptake of this technology, proving its suitability for performing widely used contemporary scans like EPI is a must. In this work we share our results from the first successful implementation of DYNAMITE-EPI.
