A method for spatially three-dimensional (3D) localized two-dimensional (2D) 1H-13C correlation spectroscopy, localized HSQC, is proposed. This method has the following special feature in the preparation period. The 180°(13C) and 180°(1H) pulses are separated in time, and the 180°(13C) pulse is applied at 1/(4 1J(CH)) before the 90°(1H) polarization transfer pulse. The preparation (echo) period 2τ can then be set substantially longer than 1/(2 1J(CH)), so that even in a whole-body system, slice-selective 90°(1H) pulses and gradient pulses can be applied in that period. The localization capabilities of this method were confirmed in a phantom experiment. The 3D localized 2D 1H-13C correlation spectra from a monkey brain in vivo were obtained after [1-13C]glucose injection, and amino acid metabolism was detected; that is, [4-13C]glutamate appeared immediately after the injection, followed by the appearance of [2- 13C]glutamate, [3-13C]glutamate, and [4-13C]glutamine.
