Abstract

1H-MRSI can provide in vivo information about specific metabolites in biological tissues. Main applications of this technique concern brain studies. However, routine clinical applications are still limited by a variety of factors such as the long acquisition time, the poor spatial resolution, the presence of undesired signals coming from water and fat, the difficulties in data-processing. These problems can be addressed with two different approaches: the design of new excitation pulses sequences, and the improvement of data-processing techniques. In this preliminary study the latter approach has been adopted. Echoes are acquired without any suppression pulses sequence: the undesired signal coming from water is attenuated by means of an opportune processing, using a filtering technique based on SVD. A specific algorithm for peaks detection based upon iterative fitting (VARPRO) was developed. Maps relative to the four main metabolites in the brain are reconstructed and presented.
