The protocol includes preparation of the setup including the radio-frequency coils, standardized interview procedures with MS patients, subject positioning in the MR scanner and MR data acquisition.
Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging at 7 Tesla Daniel Stäb1,2, Aiman Al Najjar1, Kieran O'Brien1,3, Wendy Strugnell4, Jonathan Richer3, Jan Rieger5, Thoralf Niendorf5, Markus Barth1 1The Centre for Advanced Imaging, The University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia, 2Department of Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology, University Clinic Würzburg, Würzburg, Germany, 3Siemens Healthcare Pty Ltd, Brisbane, Australia, 4Richard Slaughter Centre of Excellence in CVMRI, The Prince Charles Hospital, Brisbane, Australia, 5MRI.Tools GmbH, Berlin, Germany The sensitivity gain inherent to ultrahigh field magnetic resonance holds promise for high spatial resolution imaging of the heart. Here, we describe a protocol customized for functional cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR) at 7 Tesla using an advanced multi-channel radio-frequency coil, magnetic field shimming and a triggering concept.
