The objective of this study was to investigate the feasibility of whole body human imaging at 7T. To accomplish this study new 300 MHz body coils and receivers had to be modeled, designed, built and applied. Human body images were acquired in three dimensions. The first 7T images show promise for safe and successful whole body imaging at 7T.
