Possibilities of phosphorous magnetic resonance spectroscopy (31P MRS) in brain diagnostics / Możliwości fosforowej spektroskopii rezonansu magnetycznego (31P MRS) w diagnostyce mózgu (246–252)

Phosphorous Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (31P MRS) is an interesting technique with a great potential in medical diagnostics. It is a perfect supplement to the examinations concerning information on the biochemical composition of the examined tissue, the level of metabolites containing phosphorus atoms, and indirectly, the metabolism of the tissue. Although the 31P MRS was historically the first known MR spectroscopy technique, it is currently not used as a diagnostic standard in spite of its numerous advantages. The purpose of this work is to present the 31P MRS method, particularly regarding its wide diagnostic capabilities.
