Suppression (OVS) applied to MR spectroscopy improves voxel localization and
suppresses undesired signals. Goal of this work was the numerical optimization
of a train of broadband SLR pulses for B1-robustness and T1
effects and its application to PRESS in the human brain at 3T. The technique improved
localization and better suppressed subcutaneous fat at around 1.5ppm in MRS voxels
close to the scalp.
