Perinatally HIV-infected youths often have compromised neurocognitive function that may be correlated with abnormal cerebral metabolite concentrations. Here, we look at 2D J-resolved spectra in a 3D acquisition acquired using an 8x undersampling and look for regional differences in metabolite concentrations between healthy and HIV-infected children. Two different reconstruction methods are compared.
