|Detailed Technology Description||
Scientists at the University of California have developed a new version of the L-COSY sequence which uses only three radio-frequency (rf) pulses for localizing the voxel (CABINET sequence as an 1D analog) and recording the two-dimensional MR spectra (L-COSY: 2D analog). This added second dimension improves resolution, decreases the overlap of the peaks, and detects additional brain metabolite resonances close to the most dominant water peak.
