Abstract

31 P NMR spectroscopy of the human heart was undertaken at 4 T to investigate whether spectra localized exclusively to the myocardium can be obtained. Utilizing a Fourier series window approach to spectroscopic imaging, we find that at least two layers across the anterior left ventricle wall can be detected, with voxel sizes of about 8 cm3.
