evaluated the metabolite profiles that were acquired using short and long echo
time (TE) magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging (MRSI) for forty patients
with non-enhancing gliomas, including 25 grade 2 and 15 grade 3 gliomas. Metabolite
differences were detected between the lesions and white matter, as well as
between grades. There were also differences in the T2 values between
metabolites within the lesions that could influence the Cho/NAA ratios between
short and long TE MRSI.
