The purpose of this study to demonstrate and discuss the potentials, challenges and pitfalls of ultra-high field CNS imaging for various CNS pathologies based on our experiences in both 7 T and 8 T whole body human Magnetic Resonance scanners (MR). The implementation of ultra-high field whole body systems in the clinical setting provides many advantages and potentials for CNS imaging, and yet there are many technical and clinical challenges to be overcome.
