Twenty-two healthy volunteers were scanned at 7T using MP2RAGE (R1 mapping) and Sa2RAGE (B1 mapping) sequences. Applying a modified HCP pipeline, within-subject (test-retest) reproducibility and across-subject variability of cortical thickness, B1+, and R1 were analyzed. The mean absolute difference of cortical thickness was larger at the bilateral lower temporal lobes and insula. Intra-subject variation of B1+ was larger in the lower temporal lobe, whereas across-subject variation of B1+ seems to come from reference transmitter amplitude settings. Except for the lower temporal lobes, variation in the cerebral cortex R1 was very small for both intra-subject measurement (1.5%) and across-subject measurement (3%).
