In this work, q-space trajectory imaging was implemented on a whole-body system equipped with a high-performance head-only gradient system capable of 200 mT/m maximum gradient amplitude and 500 T/m/s slew rate. The improved gradient performance enabled the acquisition of q-space trajectory imaging with sub-millimeter in-plane resolution and reduced voxel volume compared to previously published work, while simultaneously improving head coverage, and reducing susceptibility induced image distortions.
