Macromolecule baseline (MMBl) determination have usually been done with inversion recovery or saturation recovery techniques. This abstract presents an alternative using both T1 and T2 information by combining inversion recovery and 2D JPRESS spectra iteratively. Part of the study involves ensuring repeatability and the result suggests that MMBl has inter-individual variability.
