Numerous methods for field computations of RF coils have been developed in the past. All these methods are based on Maxwell's equations or their derived wave equation. However, these methods are difficult to implement and not very intuitively to handle. In this work, we have investigated the suitability of the time-generalized Biot-Savart-law for $$$B_1$$$, $$$B_1^+$$$ and $$$B_1^-$$$-field computations. We showed that this method can be easily implemented and that the obtained results are a good approximation when reflections are neglectable.
