High resolution anatomical imaging of the brain at 7.0 Tesla for instance FLAIR, T1-, T2*- imaging and MR angiography will be able to discern pathology and anatomical variations not seen at lower field strengths. It could therefore contribute to faster and more accurate diagnosing. In this Educational Review we show the clinical potential of the anatomically highly detailed images of the brain which can be obtained with 7.0 Tesla MRI. A series of illustrative 7.0 Tesla MRI patient examples will be included.
