Chemical shift imaging with phase-encoding RF pulses.

Abstract

An inherent problem of conventional chemical shift imaging is signal contamination into adjacent voxels. This is especially severe in proton spectroscopy of the central nervous system, where the lipid signal from the skull is several orders of magnitude higher than the metabolite resonances from the brain. The reason for the contamination lies in the fact… (More)
