Previous studies at 3T have shown that T1 relaxometry enables personalized characterization of brain tissues by comparing physical properties of a single patient to a normative atlas. Ultra-high field imaging allows exploiting this concept at even higher resolutions, which can be crucial to detect certain diseases. To this end, here we established an atlas of normative T1 values at 7T from acquisitions with 0.6$$$\times$$$0.6$$$\times$$$0.6 mm3 isotropic resolution. Additionally, the clinical potential and improvement of 7T vs. 3T imaging is shown in two case reports from patients scanned at both field strengths.
