High-resolution 7-T imaging and quantitative susceptibility mapping produce greater anatomic detail compared with conventional strengths because of improvements in signal/noise ratio and contrast. The exquisite anatomic details of deep structures, including delineation of microscopic architecture using advanced techniques such as quantitative susceptibility mapping, allows improved detection of abnormal findings thought to be imperceptible on clinical strengths. This article reviews caveats and techniques for translating sequences commonly used on 1.5 or 3 T to high-resolution 7-T imaging. It discusses for several broad disease categories how high-resolution 7-T imaging can advance the understanding of various diseases, improve diagnosis, and guide management.
