Examination of patients with implants has become
relevant at research facilities with ultra-high field
strength systems. Nevertheless, no standards or tests
currently exist for implants at 7T due to the more
complex and specific challenges at this field strength.
Many 7T research centers conservatively exclude all
subjects with implants, regardless of type or loca-tion.
This study presents our 7-year experience in imaging
patients and healthy volunteers with implants other than
dental implants at 7T.
