In Vivo1H MRS Applications

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


In vivo1H magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) enables the noninvasive determination of tissue concentrations of various metabolites and compounds in animals or humans. Thus, metabolism can be investigated in vivo, and pathological as well as drug- or exercise-induced changes of the metabolism can be observed. This article gives an overview about detectable metabolites and applications of in vivo1H MRS in physiological and pharmacological research as well as clinical diagnostics.
