Summary of "Clinical 7T MRI: are we there yet? A review about magnetic resonance imaging at ultra-high field."

In recent years, ultra-high field magnetic resonance imaging (7 T and above) has received more interest for clinical imaging. Indeed, a number of studies have shown the benefits from the application of this powerful tool not only for research purposes, but also in realms of improved diagnostics and patient management. The increased signal-to-noise ratio, higher spatial resolution compared with conventional and high-field clinical scanners, allows imaging of small anatomical detail and subtle pathological findings. Furthermore, greater spectral resolution is achieved at ultra-high field, allows the resolution of metabolites for MR spectroscopic imaging. All these advantages have a significant impact on many neurological diseases, including multiple sclerosis, cerebrovascular disease, brain tumors, epilepsy and neurodegenerative diseases, in part because the pathology can be subtle and lesions small in these diseases, therefore having higher signal and resolution will help lesion detection. In this review we discuss the main clinical neurological applications and some technical challenges which remain with ultra-high field MRI.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The use of molecularly targeted imaging probes to localize and/or monitor biochemical and cellular processes via various imaging modalities that include RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; ULTRASONOGRAPHY; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; fluorescence imaging; and MICROSCOPY.

Spectroscopic method of measuring the magnetic moment of elementary particles such as atomic nuclei, protons or electrons. It is employed in clinical applications such as NMR Tomography (MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING).

A technique applicable to the wide variety of substances which exhibit paramagnetism because of the magnetic moments of unpaired electrons. The spectra are useful for detection and identification, for determination of electron structure, for study of interactions between molecules, and for measurement of nuclear spins and moments. (From McGraw-Hill Encyclopedia of Science and Technology, 7th edition) Electron nuclear double resonance (ENDOR) spectroscopy is a variant of the technique which can give enhanced resolution. Electron spin resonance analysis can now be used in vivo, including imaging applications such as MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING.

A type of MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING that uses only one nuclear spin excitation per image and therefore can obtain images in a fraction of a second rather than the minutes required in traditional MRI techniques. It is used in a variety of medical and scientific applications.

The creation of a visual display of the inside of the entire body of a human or animal for the purposes of diagnostic evaluation. This is most commonly achieved by using MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; or POSITRON EMISSION TOMOGRAPHY.
