Increasing the spatial resolution is of major importance to structural imaging as this may build bridges to optical microscopy and may lead to superior diagnostics and segmentations. Increasing the spatial resolution with sufficient SNR usually prolongs time of acquisition. This inevitably introduces more motion artifacts even with experienced subjects. However, this can be compensated by prospective motion correction. Increasing the resolution to a few hundred micrometers inherently reduces SNR such that reconstruction by sum of squares is not adequate anymore. Here we demonstrate our work on the acquisition and reconstruction of the currently highest resolution in vivo MPRAGE at 7T.
