Higher magnetic field strength leads to an increase of the SNR. On the other hand, the increase of magnetic field strength implies larger magnetic susceptibility inhomogeneities. Recently, 5.0T whole body magnetic resonance imaging system has been introduced into research and clinical settings. In this study, we evaluated the feasibility of abdominal imaging at 5T and compared the image quality and potential artifacts with 3T. Our results indicated that 5T MRI is able to acquire artifact-free anatomical images of the abdomen. Compared to 3T MRI, abdominal MRI at 5T resulted in comparable image quality and better contrast ratios.
