In this study, we demonstrate that a metabolite-cycled semi-LASER pulse localization with density-weighted concentric rings trajectory (DW-CRT) enables high-resolution MRSI to be acquired at 3 Tesla within a clinically feasible acquisition time. High-resolution (5 x 5 x 10 mm3) DW-CRT feasibility at 3T was assessed in 6 healthy volunteers. Subsequently, the clinical utility of this approach was demonstrated by mapping the presence of 2-HG in a patient with a grade III oligodendroglioma tumor.
