The article highlights new perspectives and challenges in abdominal 3 tesla (T) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The parallel acquisition techniques used on MRI systems with multiple receiver channels allow the increase of spatial resolution at almost no cost in scan time. State-of-the-art 1.5T MRI scanners are now equipped with independent receiver channels. Individual steps for the optimization of image acquisition for abdominal 3T imaging are discussed.

    The intravenous administration of a standard dose of conventional gadolinium-based contrast agents produces higher contrast between the tumor and normal brain at 3.0 Tesla (T) than at 1.5 T, which allows reducing the dose to half of the standard one to produce similar contrast at 3.0 T compared...
