Simply transposing 1.5-T abdominal and pelvic MRI protocols to 3-T scanners does not result in optimized images. Simple modifications can be made to preexisting 1.5-T protocols to obtain image quality at 3 T that is comparable to that at 1.5 T. We illustrate several simple modifications to 1.5-T body protocols that maintain image quality at 3 T.
