MRSI can benefit greatly from ultra-high field strengths. Given the higher SNR and higher chemical shift dispersion, metabolite mapping can be done with higher quantification precision and at higher spatial resolution. The aim of this work was to study the competing effects of spatial resolution, SNR, linewidth and higher field strengths by pushing the spatial resolution limits of 3T and 9.4T for metabolite mapping of the human brain.
