Research sites in the “UK7T Network”, a consortium of 7 tesla capable sites in the UK, have conducted a pilot multi-site, multi-vendor neuroimaging study. The Network aims to create a harmonized set of imaging protocols relevant for clinical research. This study evaluates the differences seen in a set of structural and functional sequences run on three different scanner models, manufactured by two different vendors, at four different sites. In this abstract we identify key differences found between systems and a provide a synopsis of the main findings. The results will inform a future ten subject “travelling heads” study.
