PURPOSE Proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy ((1) H-MRS) for quantitative in vivo assessment of mouse myocardial metabolism requires accurate acquisition timing to minimize motion artifacts and corrections for T1 -dependent partial saturation effects. In this study, mouse myocardial water and metabolite T1 relaxation time constants were quantified. METHODS Cardiac-triggered and respiratory-gated PRESS-localized (1) H-MRS was employed at 9.4 T to acquire signal from a 4-µL voxel in the… CONTINUE READING
