The developped method is based on a non Fourier technique to reduce acquisition time and cross-voxel contamination in Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopic Imaging technique.The method is based on the discrete Wavelet Transform which allow spatial localization. The latter is used to reduce acquisition time by a sequential excitations of adjacent and/or non-adjacent voxels with no waiting time (TR) in between.
