HIV affects more than 1 million individuals In the US and over 40 million people worldwide. CNS is commonly involved in the early stage HIV infection. Conventional 3D MRSI is time-consuming because it involves a large number of phase encodings. EPSI approaches have been used to reduce the long acquisition time required for multiple spatial encoding steps. In our study, non-uniformly undersampled (NUS) semi LASER based 3D EPSI was used to quantitate changes in brain metabolites, NAA, Cr, Cho and myo-inositol in a group of HIV adults in comparison to age matched control sample using compressed sensing reconstruction by minimizing total variation.
