Recent technological advances have brought new ultrahigh-field MRI (UHF) systems to the market, which nourish the expectation of better image quality with vendor-supplied sequences than with older systems. This would be an important factor for a wider distribution of UHF system and, thus, for moving UHF technology forward from a research tool to a clinical application. Therefore, the aim of this study was to perform a pilot study to assess the new Siemens Magnetom Terra 7T system with regard to typical clinical applications of 7T MRI in the brain.
