This study provides methodological background for neuroimaging applications of fast 3D MPF mapping in ultra-high magnetic fields and demonstrates that MPF presents the most effective source of high-field brain tissue contrast. Unique contrast features, high spatial resolution, and the capability to provide quantitative information about myelination make MPF mapping an ultimate tool for small animal neuroimaging in high magnetic fields.
