Study of the Hippocampus and Its Subfields Is Easier With 7T MRI

Background: MRI is important for evaluating degenerative dementias, especially in ruling out potentially reversible causes. Increasing static field strength from 1.5 to 3 Tesla (T) has improved imaging of macro and microstructures in the brain but still measures in millimeters, far from the size of neurodegenerative dementia pathologies. Objective: To review the literature and describe and evaluate studies that have used 7T MRI in vivo in subjects with neurodegenerative dementias. more...
