Abstract
Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopic Imaging (MRSI) methods combine the analytic capabilities of NMR with spatial discrimination methods of MR imaging, and provides a unique method for evaluation of metabolism in vivo. The low sensitivity of the MR resonances typically observed for MRSI studies requires lengthy spatial encoding methods and signal averaging, which lead to long acquisition times. Simple modifications of the spatial encoding techniques used for MRI are described which optimize spatial resolution and data acquisition times for in vivo applications of MRSI.
