A method for high resolution (5x5x10mm3) spectroscopy at 7T is proposed. A high resolution 2D-CSI measurement is combined with broadband adiabatic water and fat suppression. Therefore SAR-demanding outer-volume suppression can be omitted. High quality spectra can be obtained at 1 second TR and 1.5ms acquisition delay (TE).
