Over recent years, high field MR scanners (3 T and above) have become increasingly widespread due to potential advantages such as higher signal-to-noise ratio. However, few examples of high resolution images covering the whole brain in reasonable acquisition times have been published to date and none have used fast spin echo (FSE), a sequence commonly employed for the acquisition of T(2) weighted images at 1.5 T. This is mostly due to the increased technical challenges associated with uniform signal generation and the increasingly restrictive constraints of current safety guidelines at high field. We investigated 10 volunteers using an FSE sequence optimized to the 4.7 T environment. This sequence allows the acquisition of 17- and 34-slice data sets with an in-plane resolution of approximately 500 microm x 500 microm and a slice thickness of 2 mm, in 5 min 40 s and 11 min 20 s, respectively. The images appear T(2) weighted, although the contrast is due to the combined effects of chosen echo time, magnetization transfer, direct radio frequency saturation and diffusion as well as the T(1) and T(2) relaxation times of the tissue. The result is an excellent detailed visualization of anatomical structures, demonstrating the great potential of 4.7 T MRI for clinical applications. This paper shows that, with careful optimization of sequence parameters, FSE imaging can be used at high field to generate images with high spatial resolution and uniform contrast across the whole brain within the prescribed power deposition limits.
