The introduction of STEAM (stimulated echo acquisition mode) magnetic resonance (MR) sequences provides access to a variety of MR parameters. T1-weighted and calculated T1 proton MR images of the head of healthy volunteers and a patient with an astrocytoma are presented. MR examinations were performed with a 2.0-T whole-body system. The STEAM T1 method can(More)
Chemical-shift-selective (CHESS) nuclear-magnetic-resonance (NMR) imaging is a new method for separating "water" and "fat" (CH2) resonances in proton NMR imaging. Its major advantage over conventional composite NMR imaging is the contrast enhancement, which in particular allows the detection of small water-containing structures, such as vessels or joint(More)
In vivo 13C spectroscopy experiments were performed using a whole-body MR system at a static field of 4 T. The main goal of the investigations was to evaluate the sensitivity increase achievable by means of 13C/1H double-resonance techniques at 4 T. Spectra from subcutaneous fat as well as muscle glycogen from the lower leg were acquired using frequency(More)
