Metabolite-specific NMR spectroscopy in vivo

NMR Biomed. 1997 Dec;10(8):435-44. doi: 10.1002/(sici)1099-1492(199712)10:8<435::aid-nbm480>;2-d.


An outline is presented of metabolite-specific in vivo NMR spectroscopy (particularly in brain). It reviews from a physical spectroscopist's perspective, the need for and the methods of observation of, individual metabolite resonances.
