It has been shown that RAPID-SI, implemented at 3 Tesla magnet, allows for reduction of acquisition time while providing accurate metabolite information as compared to CSI. To benefit from the higher sensitivity of the Ultra-High-Field (UHF), RAPID-SI was implemented on a Siemens Terra 7T scanner, and phantom MRSI data were acquired, with less averaging, and compared in terms of acquisition time, signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), and data analysis to those collected using CSI method. As expected, and in addition to the acquisition time reduction, proportional to the speed factor R, RAPID-SI provides similar quantification results with similar SNR values, afterward data reconstruction, as compared to CSI.
