Fat-selective MRI was applied to assess the amount and spatial distribution of hepatic lipids (HL) in healthy subjects. The results were compared with those obtained by localized 1H-MR spectroscopy (MRS). Ninety subjects (23-63 years old) underwent single-slice fat-selective MRI with spatial-spectral excitation and volume-localized spectroscopy at 1.5 T. HLs were analyzed in ventral and dorsal regions of interest (ROIs) of the liver in fat-selective images. Spectra were evaluated using the… CONTINUE READING
