Abstract

3T MRI offers improved morphological and functional studies of the brain compared with the more commonly used field strength 1.5T. Clinical 3T MRI of the brain is beneficial for high resolution morphological imaging, MR angiography, diffusion-MRI including diffusion tensor imaging, perfusion-MRI, functional MRI (fMRI), and MR spectroscopy. The performance is enhanced by the combination with powerful magnetic field gradients.
