The use of a long TE enables detection
of acetylcarnitine with 1H-MRS. However, in (very) obese subjects,
suppression of overlapping lipid resonances becomes problematic, even with long
TE. We here show short T1 metabolites, such as lipids, can
additionally be suppressed with a new T1 editing approach.
