An ECLIPSE-IVS based MRSI method was developed utilizing 3 ms GOIA-WURST RF pulses (BW = 15 kHz), operating at an RF amplitude B1(95%) = 0.87 kHz. The ECLIPSE-IVS method was preceded with a water suppression module incorporating an optional inversion recovery (IR) component, to achieve macromolecule-nulled acquisitions. MRSI in vivo demonstrate robust extracranial lipid suppression with reliable, artifact-free metabolic maps generated with peak integration and LCModel fitting.
