Abstract In this paper, a new design for transverse asymmetric head gradient coils is proposed for Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). Unlike the conventional coil designs where the x and y coils are placed onto separate radial layers, the new design has windings for both the x and y coils in each transverse coil layer. The coil performance using the new design was compared with the conventional coils with the same dimensions and constraints. The results showed that the new design can improve coil performance in terms of a lower inductance, lower resistance and a higher figure of merit.
