Abstract

(31)P magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) allows measurement of in vivo high-energy phosphate kinetics in the myocardium. While traditionally (31)P cardiac spectroscopy is performed at 1.5T, cardiac MRS at higher field strength can theoretically increase signal to noise ratio (SNR) and spectral resolution therefore improving sensitivity and specificity of the cardiac spectra. The reproducibility and feasibility of performing cardiac spectroscopy at 3T is presented here in this study in healthy volunteers and patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
