Gradient coils are traditionally designed using variations of the target field method. For asymmetric coils it may however be advantages to allow for a flexible field offset and specify the field gradient as a target instead. In this work we evaluate the performance of the target gradient method for generating head gradient inserts with a window in a lower face region.
