We determined the accuracy and precision to measure GSH and Asc concentrations in ultra-short echo time spectra when injecting phantom measured GSH and Asc spectra into 5 in vivo human brain spectra acquired at 3 T and 7 T. We found that a change in GSH ≥ 40% is detectable at both fields while a change in Asc can only be quantified at 7 T.
