Magnetic resonance imaging at different echo times are acquired from phantom and neck in ob/+ control mice in a 9.4T system. In this work, Fourier Transform was applied at TEs to differentiate individual peaks. Results from phantom are very promising. Derived results from neck of ob/+ control mouse are in good agreement with theory also. From the spatial distribution of individual peaks, this method is able to differentiate water and lipid composition. More images are required for decent spectral resolution.
