Adiabatic excitation for 31P MR spectroscopy in the human heart at 7 T: A feasibility study

Abstract

PURPOSE Phosphorus magnetic resonance spectroscopy (31 P-MRS) provides a unique tool for assessing cardiac energy metabolism, often quantified using the phosphocreatine (PCr)/adenosine triphosphate (ATP) ratio. Surface coils are typically used for excitation for 31 P-MRS, but they create an inhomogeneous excitation field across the myocardium, producing… (More)
