The quantification of metabolite signals in the 1H-spectrum of the human brain in vivo is complicated by an extensive spectral overlap of resonances, due to the restricted chemical shift dispersion of the 1H-nucleus. For instance, the myo-Inositol peaks observable in the 1H-spectrum at 7T are close the water resonance and overlap with that of glycine. In contrast, the high resolution of the 13C-MR spectrum aids in the interpretation of the highly sensitive but poorly resolved 1H-MR spectrum. In this study, we demonstrate the advantage of 13C-MRS at 7T by measuring high resolved myo-Inositol C1-C6 resonances in the human brain.
