OBJECTIVES To analyze the impact of altered magnetic field properties on image quality and on potential artifacts when an established whole-body magnetic resonance imaging (WB-MRI) protocol at 1.5 Tesla (T) is migrated to 3 T. MATERIALS AND METHODS Fifteen volunteers underwent noncontrast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) on 32-channel whole body-scanners at 1.5 and 3 T with the use of parallel acquisition techniques (PAT). Coronal T1-weighted TSE- and short tau inversion recovery (STIR… CONTINUE READING
