A preliminary design study on a shoulder cut-out head and neck gradient coil for improved imaging of the neck was performed. The designs presented here allow a shifted imaging region such that the neck and cervical spine can be placed directly in the imaging region. This work represents the first step in a larger design study and work is still ongoing to determine the effect on gradient coil performance as design parameters are modified. Ultimately, this will allow high performance imaging of both the head and neck.
