White matter, gray matter or cerebrospinal fluid (CSF)] can be clearly distinguished in a high definition image. This was a major advance since computed tomography (CT) was not good at distinguishing white from gray matter, thus limiting its use in research. The higher the magnetic field strength, the better the resolution of the image. 5 T and 3 T scanners are in common use for research and clinical purposes, with some facilities now using 5–7 T machines. These machines are noisy and claustrophobic, however, which means that a significant proportion of people will not or cannot stay in them.
