The classification of cartilage in the wrist by means of
requires ultra-high spatial resolutions. While T
coincide with long and strong B1+ fields, we demonstrate
that a SAR optimized coil can provide uncompromised T
of the wrist even at 7T. Demonstrated with strong and
uniform spin locking fields, combined with 32 channel
receivers, quantified 0.5 mm isotropic T
obtained of cartilage in the wrist.
