We examined the MR image appearance of human Achilles tendon as a function of orientation to the B0 field at 3 T and 11.7 T. Images were registered and displayed a remarkable similarity in the fine discernable structural features at both field strengths. Residual dipolar effects are responsible for the contrast on these images, rather than frequency changes that scale with magnetic field.
