Adiabatic excitation for (31) P MR spectroscopy in the human heart at 7 T: A feasibility study.
PURPOSE: Phosphorus magnetic resonance spectroscopy ((31) P-MRS) provides a unique tool for assessing cardiac energy metabolism, often quantified using the phosphocreatine (PCr)/adenosine triphosphate (ATP) ratio. Surface coils are typically used for excitation for (31) P-MRS, but they create an inhomogeneous excitation field across the myocardium, producing undesirable, spatially varying partial saturation. Therefore, we implemented adiabatic excitation in a 3D chemical shift imaging (CSI) ...Expand abstract
