Clinical MSK imaging at 7T is advantageous as a result of increased signal to noise ratio, contrast resolution, and spatial resolution compared to lower field strengths. Nevertheless, we have identified several challenges when performing MSK imaging at this field strength including inferior image uniformity, artifacts, coil limitations, and concealed pathology. The purpose of this exhibit is to introduce our early clinical experience with MSK imaging at 7T and illustrate the challenges we have identified.
