Gradient Echo-based Quantitative MRI of Human Brain at 7T

"Hampus Olsson has been a licensed medical physicist since 2014. He received his PhD in medical radiation physics at Lund University in 2021 with a thesis pertaining to ultra-high field MRI.

This presentation, entitled “Gradient echo-based quantitative MRI of human brain at 7T”, is a summary of the work performed during his postgraduate studies. The process of implementing and optimizing quantitative MRI protocols for whole brain mapping of T1, magnetization transfer (MT) and the local flip angle is described. Emphasis is put on tackling 7T-specific challenges such as increased B1 inhomogeneity and SAR deposition."
