In this work, we present a new imaging capability for simultaneous mapping of metabolites, macromolecules and tissue susceptibility in the brain, using a single scan for about 5 minutes. This new capability builds on the recently proposed subspace imaging framework SPICE (SPectroscopic Imaging by exploiting spatiospectral CorrElation) and uses a union-of-subspaces based approach to extract tissue susceptibility, metabolite and macromolecule spatiospectral distributions from an ultrashort-TE, short-TR, high-resolution MRSI scan without water suppression. In vivo results were used to demonstrate this exciting capability.
