  • Measurements
  • Due to increased shimming requirements and hardware limitations, many MRS experiments at higher magnetic fields are performed on a single voxel in the brain - thereby limiting any possible insight that may be shed by concurrent measurements in other regions of the brain. (bl.uk)
  • At higher magnetic field strengths this can introduce significant bias in metabolite measurements. (bl.uk)

  • METHODS
  • In this article, we review our experience using the 31 P-MT technique to measure P i → ATP flux in a variety of models, describe limitations of the methodology, assess alternative and complementary methods of estimating cellular bioenergetics, and discuss the validity of using the technique as a biomarker of metabolic function in vivo.

  • clinical
  • Given that many clinical MR scanners now have the capability of performing 31 P-MT experiments and the implementation of the method is becoming more widespread, we would like to offer our perspective on the application of the technique in vivo. (diabetesjournals.org)
  • Unlike in vivo MRS which is intensively used in clinical settings, fMRS is used primarily as a research tool, both in a clinical context, for example, to study metabolite dynamics in patients suffering from epilepsy, migraine and dyslexia, and to study healthy brains. (wikipedia.org)

  • Single Voxel Spectroscopy (SVS): has a minimum spatial resolution of approximately 1 cm3, and has the cleanest spectrum free from unwanted artefacts due to the small acquired volume. (wikipedia.org)
  • NMR spectroscopy of a sample produces an NMR spectrum, which is essentially a graph of signal intensity on the vertical axis vs. chemical shift for a certain isotope on the horizontal axis. (wikipedia.org)
  • In such an off-resonance decoupled spectrum, only 1H atoms bonded to a carbon atom will split its 13C signal. (wikipedia.org)
  • choline
  • Choline (Cho) levels have been described as diagnostic markers for malignancy for many different tumor types in vivo and ex vivo (tissue biopsies). (illinois.edu)
  • The second phase of the thesis aims to characterize the detectability of the choline metabolite in canine lymph nodes ex vivo, and compare choline ii levels (via choline signal-to-noise ratio or Cho SNR) among populations of normal, reactive, and malignant lymph nodes. (illinois.edu)
  • Our hypothesis was that choline would be detectable in canine lymph nodes ex vivo, and that the Cho SNR in malignant lymph nodes would be significantly higher than in normal and reactive lymph nodes. (illinois.edu)
  • 1H-magnetic resonance spectroscopy (1H-MRS) detects choline-containing compounds, creatine and N-acetyl aspartate (NAA) in vivo. (ox.ac.uk)
  • Brain
  • Unlike push-pull cannula, microdialysis and in vivo voltammetry, fMRS is a non-invasive method for studying dynamics of biochemistry in an activated brain. (wikipedia.org)
  • Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) studies have demonstrated that oral doses of MSM are absorbed into the blood and cross the blood/brain barrier. (wikipedia.org)
  • A meta-analytic review by McDaniel found that the correlation between Intelligence and in vivo brain size was larger for females (0.40) than for males (0.25). (wikipedia.org)
  • techniques
  • As the application of 31 P-MT techniques becomes more widespread, this article reviews the methodology and outlines our experience with its implementation in a variety of models in vivo. (diabetesjournals.org)
  • The success of these studies indicates a strong potential of in vivo bile MRS techniques to characterize and diagnose a wide variety of HPB disorders. (umanitoba.ca)
  • signals
  • Another problem associated with in-vivo MRS is that most metabolite peaks are overlapped by broad, unwanted macromolecule and lipid signals. (bl.uk)
  • studies
  • The present paper provides an introductory overview of the current status of in vivo 31P MRS of skeletal muscle, focusing on human applications, but with some illustrative examples from studies on transgenic mice. (lu.se)
  • human
  • An in vivo alternative has been attempted by others on human bile within the gallbladder. (umanitoba.ca)
  • peaks
  • The use of higher strength magnetic fields result in clear resolution of the peaks and is the standard in industry. (wikipedia.org)
  • Unfortunately
  • Unfortunately, increasing the static magnetic field strength also creates new technical challenges that must be resolved before any gains associated with higher magnetic field strength can be achieved. (bl.uk)
  • field strength
  • One way of in- creasing both the sensitivity and spectral resolution of MRS is to increase the static magnetic field strength. (bl.uk)
  • To balance the need for temporal resolution and sufficient SNR, fMRS requires a high magnetic field strength (1.5 T and above). (wikipedia.org)
  • Modern NMR spectrometers have a very strong, large and expensive liquid helium-cooled superconducting magnet, because resolution directly depends on magnetic field strength. (wikipedia.org)
