Phosphorus magnetic resonance spectroscopy (P-MRS) has now been used in the investigation of muscle energy metabolism in health and disease for over 15 years. The present review describes the basics of the metabolic observations made by P-MRS including the assumptions and problems associated with the use of this technique. Extramuscular factors, which may affect the P-MRS results, are detailed. The important P-MRS observations in patients with mitochondrial myopathies, including the monitoring… CONTINUE READING
