In this study, we retrospectively evaluated 114 consecutive patients imaged with Quantitative Susceptibility Mapping (QSM) by examining image quality under different situations, including presence of diverse pathology, various brain regions, and a wide range of age. The consistent image quality observed in this study suggested the potential of QSM as a tool for clinical diagnosis.
