This study evaluates the performance of semi-LASER and MEGA-sLASER for 2-hydroxyglutarate (2-HG) detection at 7T. We compared a semi-LASER with TE of 110ms with editing of 2-HG at 4.02 ppm using MEGA-sLASER with TE of 74ms in phantoms with different concentrations of 2-HG. Both methods were able to detect 2-HG concentrations as low as 0.5mM. MEGA-sLASER provided a clean 2-HG signal. Contrary, the fact that the fitting accuracy for 2-HG in semi-LASER is similar to MEGA-sLASER promotes to choose for a semi-LASER implementation.
