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.
