Susceptibility-weighted imaging (SWI) and quantitative susceptibility mapping (QSM) have been shown to provide unique contrasts that can be used to study pathophysiologic changes of tissue magnetic susceptibility in various brain diseases. As magnetic susceptibility effects increase with the main field strength, there has been a rapidly growing interest in performing SWI and QSM at ultrahigh field (UHF) (7 Tesla and above). The aim of this study was to demonstrate how the use of the UHF of 10.5 Tesla may promote SWI and QSM of the human brain.
