Ultrahigh field systems provide significant SNR benefits to MRSI, but also bring new challenges for accelerated MRSI due to increased spectral bandwidth and larger B0/B1 inhomogeneities. We have managed to overcome these problems and developed a SPICE-based data acquisition and processing technique for rapid, high-resolution spectroscopic imaging of the human brain without water-suppression at 7T. The proposed method can simultaneously obtain metabolite signals at 3.0×3.0×3.0 mm3 resolution and companion water signals at 1.0×1.0×3.0 mm3 resolution with high SNR in a single 8 min scan.
