Abstract

Clinical MRI at a field strength of 3.0T Is finding increasing use. However, along with the advantages of 3.0T, such as increased SNR, there can be drawbacks, including increased levels of imaging artifacts. Although every imaging artifact observed at 3.0T can also be present at 1.5T, the intensity level is often higher at 3.0T and thus the artifact is more objectionable. This review describes some of the imaging artifacts that are commonly observed with 3.0T imaging, and their root causes. When possible, counter-measures that reduce the artifact level are described.
