In this work, we present the first human magnetic resonance image (MRI) obtained at ultrahigh field strengths (8 T). We demonstrate that clinical imaging will be possible at 8 T and that reasonable quality head images can be obtained at this field strength. Most importantly, we emphasize that the power required to excite the spins at 8 T is much lower than had previously been predicted by the nuclear magnetic resonance theory. A 90 degree pulse in the head at 8 T requires only approximately 0… CONTINUE READING
