The advantages of increased SNR drive the spread of applications to 7T. While methods and hardware continue to improve, the potential to perform a full multiparametric exam exploiting the advantages of ultrahigh magnetic fields becomes possible but has yet to be investigated. We explore a full MRI exam including anatomic, diffusion and dynamic contrast enhanced MRI (DCEMRI) methods at 7T and compare them against 3T acquisitions in a patient population with various coil configurations: surface coils and surface combined endorectal coils.
