Renewed interest in clinical low-field MR systems has opened up a new design space for MR pulse sequence design. To explore these opportunities, and to better inform hardware design, we are developing a flexible simulation tool based on a numerical simulation of the Bloch equations. This tool will both be able to model pulse sequences under the influence of realistic applied fields, and account for changes in relaxation time due to changes in field strength. This abstract presents our work to date in developing this tool.
