Description: This five-and-one-quarter-hour advanced course is the second of two courses on
in vivo MR spectroscopy. It will cover elements of today's frontier methodology
(fast CSI, editing, decoupling, statistical tools) and advanced applications (windows on
tumor metabolism, NMR of body fluids) of in vivo MRS together with an overview of
today's methods and applications in high resolution and high field MR spectroscopy.
Upon completion of this session,
participants should be able to:
Describe fundamental principles on which advanced
uses of MRS are based;
List state-of-the-art techniques developed for research
applications of MR spectroscopy;
Appraise advantages and pitfalls in the use of
statistical tools to analyze MRS data;
Summarize recent biomedical research activities
involving in vivo MRS;
Summarize issues of present-day methodology and
applications of high resolution spectroscopy.
five minutes of each presentation will be reserved for questions.
