A TE-Averaged sequence was created on a Siemens Biograph mMR 3 Tesla scanner for the purpose of detecting glycine at a clinical field strength in a healthy population. The sequence demonstrated that it can detect glycine and glutamate with moderate reproducibility, potentially providing a method to indirectly measure the health of the NMDA receptor
