An inner-volume modification of a spectroscopic imaging technique based on RARE (rapid acquisition with relaxation enhancement) sequences is shown to provide, in less than 1 minute, spectra suitable for fat/water peak-area integration from selected imaging columns containing more than 1,000 5 x 5 x 1-mm voxels. A limitation is the unavoidable T2 weighting… CONTINUE READING
