NMR spectroscopic measurements of diffusion in heart

Abstract:

A decrease in the apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) of water is becoming an important tool for the detection of acute and chronic brain disorders, yet it is not known whether changes in myocardial ADCs hold similar potential. Consequently, this work determined whether the ADCs of water or intracellular metabolites could be used to show ischaemia or cell swelling in the isolated rat heart.

A modified STEAM pulse sequence was designed to measure the ADCs of the 1H-NMR d...
