Over the past two decades, there has been a great deal of development in the application of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) to biomedical research and clinical medicine. Along with the development of magnetic resonance imaging , in vivo magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) is becoming a research tool for biochemical studies of humans as well as a potentially more specific diagnostic tool, since it provides specific information on individual chemical species in living systems. Experimental studies in animals and humans have demonstrated that MRS can be used to study the biochemical basis of disease and to follow the treatment of disease.
