The European Standard IEC 62464-1:2018 [1] describes the methodologies to carry out acceptance and constancy tests of an MR scanner. Its come into effect extends its applicability in the range of ultra-high field (UHF) tomographers. Here, we present a protocol, with an effective time of acquisition of about 11 hours, developed for the testing of a 7T MR system, in order to address all the requirements of the standard for the evaluation of essential image quality parameters. The protocol provided for the test of two different coil configurations, using proper phantoms.
