(1)H MR spectroscopy of skeletal muscle, liver and bone marrow.

Abstract

Proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy ((1)H MRS) offers interesting metabolic information even from organs outside the brain. In the first part, applications in skeletal muscle for determination of intramyocellular lipids (IMCL), which are involved in the pathogenesis of insulin resistance, are described. Peculiarities of spectral pattern are discussed and… (More)
