PURPOSE To assess volumetric proton MR spectroscopic imaging (MRSI) of the human brain on multivendor MRI instruments. METHODS Echo-planar spectroscopic imaging was developed on instruments from three manufacturers, with matched specifications and acquisition protocols that accounted for differences in sampling performance, radiofrequency (RF) power, and data formats. Intersite reproducibility was evaluated for signal-normalized maps of N-acetylaspartate (NAA), creatine (Cre), and choline… CONTINUE READING
