Abstract

Growth in the use of 3T in body imaging has been hampered due to problems related to more prominent artifacts occurring within the larger field of view of abdominal and pelvic studies. This article will discuss the theoretical advantages of imaging at higher field strength as compared with 1.5T systems and the current imaging standards for body MRI. This article also discusses challenges related to imaging at 3T and various strategies that may be employed to solve them.
