Comparisons of the multi-shell DWI is described for the USU/GE MAGNUS 3T head-only gradient system and a clinical whole-body GE MR750 3T magnet system. The advantages of high-performance gradients are shown in analysis outcomes of dMRI metrics. Direct comparison is made between identical diffusion pulse sequences and system optimized sequences for each platform. The shorter TE and high-gradient strength of MAGNUS enhance SNR and diffusion imaging response.
