Quantitative proton and quantitative proton-decoupled 31P magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) of the brain was performed in 16 patients with liver disease (10 with and six without chronic hepatic encephalopathy) and four patients with hyponatremia, as well as 20 age-matched normal subjects. Patients with hepatic encephalopathy were distinguished from(More)
