Complete coverage of the in vivo proton metabolite spectrum, including downfield resonances, requires a spectral bandwidth of approximately 9 ppm. Spectral bandwidth of in vivo echo-planar spectroscopic imaging (EPSI) is primarily limited by gradient strength of the oscillating readout gradient, gradient slew rate, and limits on peripheral nerve stimulation… CONTINUE READING
