Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy

Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (MRS) is the medical name for NMR Spectroscopy as it applies to medicine.  It is able to detect the biochemical changes that accompany specific diseases.  For the coming posts, the following aspects of MRS that are less frequently discussed but are vital to the production of quality invivo MR spectra will be presented:
  1. Spectrum of metabolites
  2. Chemical shift (localization) artefacts
  3. Lipid contamination
  4. Spectral quality & artefacts
  5. Quality assurance for clinical MRS
