In the past 10 to 15 years, 1.5T has been one of the most commonly used field strengths for day-to-day clinical operations. However, recent advances in high field technology and the increased availability of high field (>1.5T) human scanners have opened the doors for a variety of exciting improvements in clinical and research applications of MR imaging. In particular, 3T has continued to gain wide acceptance as one of the main field strengths for clinical and research studies. Therefore, in this article the authors focus on the pros and cons of 3T imaging and comparisons between results obtained at 3T and 1.5T.
