Fast spectroscopic imaging techniques such as 31 P echoplanar spectroscopic imaging in high B 0 can help to detect small changes in cellular energy metabolism on a time scale of a few seconds. The presented data show that 31 P echoplanar spectroscopic imaging techniques enable functional spectroscopic studies of human energy metabolism in vivo at 7 T with good spatial and temporal resolution.
