Implementation of multi-echo-based correlated spectroscopic imaging and pilot findings in human brain and calf muscle.

PURPOSE To implement a spatially encoded correlated spectroscopic imaging (COSI) sequence on 3 Tesla (T) MRI/MR spectroscopy scanners incorporating four echoes to collect four phase-encoded acquisitions per repetition time (TR), and to evaluate the performance and reliability of this four-dimensional (4D) multi-echo COSI (ME-COSI) sequence in brain and calf… CONTINUE READING
