It depends on how high of a resolution you want. On our Siemens 3T Allegra, we are able to achieve 128x128 by 33 slices for a 1.9mm x 1.9mm x 4mm voxel. The TR was 2580ms.

If you use a Siemens scanner, the standard BOLD sequence can be changed to a matrix of 128x128 instead of 64x64 by tweaking the TR, TE, #slices, FOV, and most importantly bandwidth. Our bandwidth was 62.5kHz.

Hello All,
I'm planning to use High Resolution EPI images for co-registration
procedure, but I'm not sure what scanning parameters should I use to obtain
the high resolution...
Any help would be appreciated!!!
