A novel gradient coil design scheme was proposed for use in planar MRI systems. Unlike conventional scheme in a limited magnet pole-pole space which usually applies unshielded design, the novel strategy integrated a set of actively-shielded gradient coils in only four layers in the pole-pole space with the utilization of the system peripheral sections. The design largely improved the shielding effect of the gradient coils and meanwhile left adequate space for the patients and installation of cooling device. The design scheme did not significantly increase the system manufacturing complexity either.
