This work presents the first in vivo human images from a whole body 10.5T MRI system. An initial coil was validated for safe operation at 10.5T allowing anatomic targets in the pelvis and abdomen to be explored. The translation of RF management strategies developed at 7T were employed to tackle the challenges at 10.5T demonstrating that high quality anatomic and quantitative data can be achieved at 450 MHz in the human torso.
