Abstract

The longitudinal gradient tends to induce more fields in workers than the transverse coils. The strongest levels of field exposure are observed when all three gradients are operated simultaneously and can be above regulations when the healthcare worker is close to the gradient coils. Other postures such as bending into the magnet shall be investigated in further studies.
