To make spectroscopic imaging clinically feasible, rapid and robust acquisitions with high SNR are necessary. We develop and apply rosette spectroscopic imaging at 7T using a 8x2 transceiver array and high degree B0 shimming to acquire rapid (<3min) whole plane brain studies at 0.7cc to 0.3cc resolution. To achieve high spectral bandwidth with moderate gradient demands, two temporal interleaves are used. We demonstrate the performance of this acquisition in controls and tumor patients, with use of regression statistics for determination of abnormality.
