Water is present in the brain tissue at a concentration that is at least four orders of magnitude higher than metabolites of interest. As a result, it is necessary to suppress the water resonance so that the brain metabolites of interest can be better visualized and quantified. This work presents a neural network model for extracting the metabolites spectrum from non-water-suppressed proton magnetic resonance spectra. The autoencoder model learns a vector field for mapping the water signal to a lower-dimensional manifold and accurately reconstructs the metabolite spectra as compared to water-suppressed spectra from the same subject.
