0 T MR Spectroscopy a b Fig. 3. 6 ppm, and the different peak ratio between the main metabolites due to the different relaxation times of individual metabolites at different field strengths crease the number of averages by factor of four to maintain the SNR. In addition, T1 relaxation times increase with higher field strength, leading to increased signal saturation for a given repetition time, and T2 relaxation times decrease. Therefore, the theoretical doubling of SNR cannot be achieved, due to the use of repetition times (TR) in the order of the T1 decay times (and not infinitely long) and echo times (TE) in the order of the metabolite T2 decay times [19 – 22].

In practice, the greater SNR may be attenuated by a b c d Fig. 8. 5 T (C, D zoom). 1 Pulse Sequences Fig. 9. High-definition FSE T2 image of the median sections of the brain a Fig. 10.

This lower SNR can, however, be compensated for by the higher field strength.

This lower SNR can, however, be compensated for by the higher field strength. In addition, the broader bandwidth, smaller echo space, shorter minimum TR and TE, and shorter FSE sequences employed at higher field strengths result in improved image quality, artefact reduction, and enhanced diagnostic performance in much shorter examination times, to the benefit of patients.
