A line scan Carr-Purcell-Meiboom-Gill (CPMG) spectroscopic imaging sequence has been implemented on a standard 1.5 T clinical scanner to map metabolite signals at multiple echo times from voxels along selected tissue columns through the brain. The CPMG multi-echo spectroscopic image data sets are used to estimate brain metabolite T2 decay parameters in a group of healthy volunteers and in one tumor patient. Inherent trade-offs between T2 decay, spectral resolution, and echo spacing prove to be important limiting factors. In particular, separate quantitation of choline and creatine resonances at 1.5 T was not achieved in the present implementation. However, the ability to collect data sets suitable for T2 decay analyses of combined choline and creatine resonances and N-acetyl aspartate resonances in under 10 minutes may prove of clinical utility in the study of brain pathology.
