Short-acquisition-time JPRESS and its application to paediatric brain tumours.

To develop and assess a short-duration JPRESS protocol for detection of overlapping metabolite biomarkers and its application to paediatric brain tumours at 3 Tesla. The short-duration protocol (6 min) was optimised and compared for spectral quality …

Sensitivity encoding for fast (1) H MR spectroscopic imaging water reference acquisition.

Accurate and fast (1) H MR spectroscopic imaging (MRSI) water reference scans are important for absolute quantification of metabolites. However, the additional acquisition time required often precludes the water reference quantitation method for MRSI …

Clinical protocols for ³¹P MRS of the brain and their use in evaluating optic pathway gliomas in children.

In vivo (31)P Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (MRS) measures phosphorus-containing metabolites that play an essential role in many disease processes. An advantage over (1)H MRS is that total choline can be separated into phosphocholine and …
