Superluminal MRI has great potential for clinical imaging. Implementation of the method is straight forward on a clinical scanner with minimal changes. Here we report on a study with 89 patients where the technique was successfully applied with no adverse effects. All patients had their complete report available by the time they prepared for their scan. In few cases potential disruptions of the space-time continuum could be observed. Great efficiencies can be achieved reducing cost, staff idle time and patient waiting time.
