We investigate the feasibility of in-vivo simultaneous brain 18F FDG PET imaging and 13C MR spectroscopy using a dedicated dual-tuned 1H-13C coil with low PET attenuation. Simultaneous in-vivo 18F FDG PET imaging and 13C unlocalized natural abundance MR spectroscopy were performed on three patients. Initial results show the technical feasibility of the simultaneous in-vivo measurement with good spectral and PET image quality.
