Whole body 7T MRI has the potential to improve monitoring of chronic liver disease by building on advances made in parallel transmit technology. This abstract outlays the measurement of T2* in the liver at 7T and compares with measurements on the same subjects at 3 and 1.5T. Acceptable values were obtained across all field strengths and T2* maps of the liver were obtained from analysis of multi-gradient echo imaging sequences. This work forms the start of a normative 7T data set that will provide vital information for developing other 7T MR liver sequences.
