We showed the feasibility of obtaining 31P MRS in the prostate area at 7T with the use of anatomy imaging and optimized B0 shimming. Individual detection of PC, GPC, GPE and GPC was feasible, illustrating the benefit of going to higher spectral resolutions that can be obtained at higher fields like 7T.
