Phosphorus ((31)P) T(1) and T(2) relaxation times in the resting human calf muscle were assessed by interleaved, surface coil localized inversion recovery and frequency-selective spin-echo at 3 and 7 T. The obtained T(1) (mean +/- SD) decreased significantly (P < 0.05) from 3 to 7 T for phosphomonoesters (PME) (8.1 +/- 1.7 s to 3.1 +/- 0.9 s… CONTINUE READING
