A noninvasive magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) method to assess the distribution of perfusion and metabolic demand (Q/VO(2)) in exercising human skeletal muscle is described. This method combines two MRI techniques that can provide accurate multiple localized measurements of Q/VO(2) during steady-state plantar flexion exercise. The first technique, (31)P chemical shift imaging, permits the acquisition of comparable phosphorus spectra from multiple voxels simultaneously. Because phosphocreatine… CONTINUE READING
