High gradient fields demand high coil currents and this leads to high local Joule heating in the gradient coils due to their resistive material properties. Excessive gradient heating is a considerable concern as it can lead to heat generation in nearby devices, such as shimming trays or radiofrequency coils, which can in turn lead to image distortion and signal loss.
