This work presents the design stage of a 3T MRI head scanner aimed to register temporal physiological events in the scale below 1 sec while imaging brain structures below 0.5 mm of resolution. The hyper-vision gradient coil concept is capable to produce 200 mT/m and nearly 1900 T/m/s using a high end amplifier. The 3D folded coil exhibits shoulder cut of an aperture of 250 mm and a DSV of 250mmx210mm while keeping resistance, eddy currents, force and inductive decoupling with the HTS magnet under control. Details and characteristics of the coil and magnet are presented in this work.
