High performance gradient coils are required to assess the tissue microstructure in human breast in vivo with diffusion-weighted imaging. A deisgn methodology of nonlinear breast gradient coil is proposed to increase resultant gradient strength with the control of field nonlinearity. The method is tested by designing a unilateral breast gradient coil for diffusion weighting. The results are analysis to reveal new insights of coil designs.
