Localized 1H-MRS was used to compare the fatty acid composition and MR relaxation in PET proven metabolically active brown adipose tissue (BAT) in humans with white adipose tissue (WAT). Paired comparison of BAT and WAT results from the same individuals the showed differences in MR relaxation of fatty acid resonances and unsaturated fatty acid content between metabolically activatable brown fat and white adipose tissue
