This pilot study demonstrates the feasibility of abdominal imaging and parametric T2* mapping of the liver and kidney at 7.0T by employing a 16 channel electrical dipole RF array. The large field of view and rather uniform excitation field enabled by the proposed bow tie antenna array affords comprehensive anatomic coverage and enhanced spatial resolution. Our initial results suggest that high spatial resolution anatomic and functional UHF-MR can be of benefit for clinical liver and kidney imaging.
