Abstract

A method for obtaining the three-dimensional distribution of chemical shifts in a spatially inhomogeneous sample using Fourier transform NMR is presented. The method uses a sequence of pulsed field gradients to measure the Fourier transform of the desired distribution on a rectangular grid in (k,t) space. Simple Fourier inversion then recovers the original distribution. An estimated signal/noise ratio of 20 in 10 min is obtained for an 'image' of the distribution of a 10 mM phosphorylated metabolite in the human head at a field of 20 kG with 2-cm resolution.
