Abstract

The proposed invention includes formed or crushed copper tubes for (magnetic resonance) MR gradient coils. The copper tubes are crushed to shape for fabricating gradient coils. Use of crushed tubing eliminates requirement of many small machined copper fittings. Further, use of crushed tubing reduces number of braze fittings required and radial profile of the gradient coil.
