The purpose of this study was to investigate contrast enhancement difference of SWI from human brain regions at 7T, and to compare contrast enhancement between cortical, anterior septal, and hippocampal veins. Five healthy volunteers (mean±SD, 24.4±1.67 years) participating in this study were scanned on 7T. The observation in this work was the significant difference of contrast enhancement of cortical and other veins, and no significant contrast enhancement difference between anterior septal and hippocampal veins. In conclusion, contrast enhancement of human brain at 7T depends on the regions giving higher cortical vein contrast with respect to anterior septal and hippocampal veins.
