In vivo 31P cardiac nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy. Methods and first clinical results

Abstract:

31P-Magnetic resonance (MR) spectra of the heart can be obtained from well-defined myocardial regions by combined MR imaging and variable selected volumes for spectroscopy. 31P-spectra of 33 volunteers and of 43 patients with dilative and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and with coronary artery disease were quantified using a curve-fitting routine. To optimize our technique, we recorded unsaturated and partially saturated spectra in several volunteers. Relative peak areas and signal-to-noise rati...
