Proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy (1H MRS) permits the acquisition of the signal arising from several brain metabolites. At long echo-time (TE) 1H MRS can detect N-acetyl-aspartate containing compounds, choline containing compounds, creatine + phosphocreatine and lactate. At short TE, lipids, tryglicerides, alanine, glutamate, glutamine, GABA, scyllo-inositol, glucose, myo-inositol, carnosine and histydine are visible. 1H MRS can be performed with single-voxel, multivoxel, single slice and… CONTINUE READING
