Cardiac spectroscopy: techniques, indications and clinical results

  title={Cardiac spectroscopy: techniques, indications and clinical results},
  author={Meinrad Joachim Beer},
  journal={European Radiology},
Cardiac MR spectroscopy allows the non-invasive assessment of metabolic processes. In contrast to numerous experimental applications, the clinical use of MRS is still restricted to specialized centers of expertise. However, during the last 10 years, several technical improvements as well as new clinical applications have been introduced, which might change this fact. This article focuses on (1) these recent technical advances such as reproducible quantification methods and dedicated data… CONTINUE READING
