While magnetic field probes can concurrently measure the spatio-temporal magnetic field dynamics during the acquisition of spiral or EPI readout, incorporating such field probes into a head coil requires careful planning and execution. The final set-up must conform to a wide array of boundary conditions for a safe and easy-to-use installation. The specific aims of this project were installing magnetic field probes into a Siemens 32ch coil and make that set-up compatible with a 3T Philips Achieva scanner. It was a high risk/gain project that was achievable only with a widely interdisciplinary approach and the kind input of colleagues.
