T2-w imaging (coronal and axial TrueFISP, coronal HASTE) of 12 healthy volunteers was evaluated qualitatively and quantitatively at 7 Tesla and 1.5 Tesla. MR images of the small bowel at 7T can be generated with an image quality that is sufficient for routine diagnostics. Despite an increasing number of artifacts at 7T, tissue contrast and image quality were equivalent as compared with those achieved with 1.5T.
