In vivo phosphorus nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (31P NMR) was used to evaluate the pattern of phosphate compounds in seven newborn babies (mean gestational age, 32 weeks; birth weight, 1,430 gm; age, 37 days) with a history of perinatal asphyxia. Spectra were collected in a 1.9 Tesla superconductive magnet with surface coil techniques. The spectra had characteristic peaks for phosphorylated monoesters (PME), inorganic phosphate (Pi), phosphodiesters (PD), phosphocreatine (PCr), and… CONTINUE READING
