The aim of this study was to characterize hepatic lipid metabolites changes in high-fat diet induced liver steatosis model using in vivo 1H-MRS. MR imaging an single-voxel 1H-MRS was performed using a PRESS sequence at 9.4T. Significant increase in lipid signals at 0.9, 1.3, 2.1, 2.3, 2.8, 4.1, 4.3, and 5.3 ppm was found in mice with high-fat diet (p<0.001). TL, TUB, UI, and Cho were increased with high-fat diet.Therefore, 1H-MRS is useful in detecting and characterizing various hepatic lipid alterations at early phase in mouse liver steatosis prior to development of fibrosis.
