Purpose: 1H-MRS is a non-invasive method to assess hepatic fat content (HFC), but there is sparse literature addressing between weeks reproducibility. Methods: In 24 subjects between weeks reproducibility was evaluated and assessed by Coefficient of Variation (CV), Repeatability Coefficient (RC) and Intraclass Correlation Coefficient (ICC)
