In a single-voxel stimulated echo localization sequence in magnetic resonance spectroscopy, magnetic field gradients are inserted within the echo time (TE) to filter signals generated through coherence pathways other than that leading to the stimulated echo. There is a significant penalty for these gradients as they increase the minimum TE, thereby leading to significant signal loss from spin-spin relaxation and phase distortions in coupled spin systems. Here, an RF phase rotation technique is… CONTINUE READING
