Examination of patients with implants has become relevant at research facilities with ultra-high field strength systems. Nevertheless, no standards or tests currently exist for implants at 7T due to the more complex and specific challenges at this field strength. Many 7T research centers conservatively exclude all subjects with implants, regardless of type or loca-tion. This study presents our 7-year experience in imaging patients and healthy volunteers with implants other than dental implants at 7T.
