MR-Spectroscopy originates from chemistry and biochemistry, where it is know as noninvasive analysis tool for centuries.
Nowadays while MRS is available on clinical MR-scanners, it emerged in the field of clinical research as powerful tool as well.
Applications are widely spread in neuro science, psychiatry and in any other metabolic problems.
MRS is most helpful for therapeutic monitoring of metabolism during drug and other treatments.
MRDAC offers over years approved standard protocols as well as newly developed and to your individual needs adapted procedures.
Standard methods include
- SVS (single voxel spectroscopy)
- 2D-CSI (chemical shift imaging)
While most MRS applications aim at brain metabolism, there are much more conceivable body regions where MRS will obtain
useful information not achievable in this way by any other modality.
