In recent years, MR imaging and spectroscopy became increasingly important tools in clinical and preclinical studies of lipid metabolism. In contrast to acute or life-threatening diseases, derailed lipid metabolism is often hidden or apparently harmless (yet with dramatic cardiovascular consequences). While radiation or invasive methods are accepted for dramatic situations, clinical studies of lipid metabolism, in particular with healthy volunteers, benefit increasingly from the non-invasive and safe nature of MR examination. Not less important, MR imaging and MR spectroscopy can yield a wealth of highly relevant information

Objectives:

  • What information can be obtained by Magnetic Resonance (MRI/MRS)?
  • MRI/S and its information on lipid metabolism
  • 1MRI/MRS studies on insulin resistance
  • Multinuclear MRS: additional information
