We compared and characterized the RF field wave behavior for human brain
imaging at 10.5T and 7T. Additionally
we explored the feasibility of using
monolithic high dielectric constant materials to potentially further enhance
SNR and circumvent SAR limitations and show that there can be great benefits through
phantom experiments and computer modeling.
