1. An apparatus for nuclear magnetic resonance therapy, comprising
a bed,
lateral coils that are arranged laterally of the bed, with a space between the lateral coils defining a treatment volume,
a first further coil arranged below the bed, and
a second further coil arranged above the treatment volume,
wherein the second further coil is pivotally mounted to the bed and configured to pivot between a lowered position, in which the second further coil is arranged substantially parallel to the first further coil, and a raised position, in which the second further coil is upwardly pivoted away from the lowered position, and
wherein the second further coil and one of the lateral coils are mounted in perpendicular planes to an angular part and jointly pivot between the lowered position and the raised position.
