The multi-peak structure of the fat 1H MR spectrum allows the triglyceride composition in adipose tissue to be estimated non-invasively. We assess the ability of 1H MR spectroscopy to reproducibly provide information about triglyceride composition in adipose tissue in vivo at clinical field strengths.
