For the first time, non-Cartesian 3D-SPARKLING (Spreading Projection Algorithm for Rapid K-space sampLING) encoding scheme was used for task-based fMRI (retinotopic mapping) at 7T. Additionally, this new acquisition technique was compared with 3D-EPI, considered as one of the reference acquisition schemes in high-resolution fMRI. The experiment was performed on a single participant at 1mm isotropic and for a temporal resolution of 2.4s. We found that both techniques yield similar statistically significant activation patterns in the visual cortex.
