as far as I know the CTF toolbox is incorporated in the /external directory
of FieldTrip and can help you a big deal.
If, for example, you recorded or have access to original CTF recordings you
can use the readin functions (ft_read_header) to read your datasets.
After read-in,you will find that one of the header fields is called 'grad'
andin there you have the information of all coils positions.
See also this for further reading:
One of the grad sub-fields is called 'tra' and contains the magnetometers
(columns) to gradiometer (rows) weights matrix.
If you take care to define a new 'tra' matrix which weights 1 for each
magnetometer then you reach your goal.
You'll probably need to look into *grad.coilpos *and retain only a subset
of your magnetometers positions (either the nearest or the furthest set
from the head center)*, *and take care to keep consistency with the indexes
in grad.tra too
