Proton MR spectroscopy has been widely used for non-invasive assessment of brain metabolites. Metabolic alterations in the motor and sensory cortex, cingulate cortex and subcortical structures have been associated with pathology. It is desirable to acquire MRSI in these regions simultaneously with short scan time and sufficient SNR. We have developed a novel technique for simultaneous multiband 2D MRSI acquisition, which combines automated atlas-based prescription and adaptive Hadamard pulses. This technique helps to reduce prescription time, improve reproducibility and increase SNR efficiency.
