In early stage of ischemia, proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) is able to detect metabolic changes even though conventional MR images and CT scans are generally normal or of no specific note. It is known that N-acetyl aspartate (NAA), which is present predominantly in neurons, and some metabolites containing lactate have dynamic changes in… (More)
