The establishment of human cardiac MRI in the setting of ultra highfield MRI puts high demands on hardware, sequences and handling of the examinees. Practical and safety relevant limitations are set for extensive modifications regarding hardware and sequence. As a consequence, human based factors play a paramount role in the success of a routinely used cardiac imaging study at 7T. We report our experiences from 71 volunteers with cardiac MRI scans with the aim to increase the understanding of the practical implementation of cardiac MRI and factors that influence and do not influence image quality in this specific setting.
