We report a method to quantify and characterize lipids in vivo. The method can generate simultaneous maps of saturated lipid, unsaturated lipid, and water, or it can also be run as a spectroscopic sequence to generate high resolution and very edited spectra. We present results from both implementations and show that the method can be used to discriminate lipids that are indistinguishable by other means.
