This paper describes the clinical implementation of a fast, single-voxel spectroscopy technique for quantifying hepatic lipid fraction and evaluating iron content. The single breath hold technique was performed in consecutive patients, and analyzed retrospectively in comparison to a multi-point 3D Dixon lipid quantification method. The two methods show excellent agreement for quantifying lipid fraction, and estimating iron content.
