31P Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (MRS) is a potent tool allowing the investigation of muscle energetics in a noninvasive manner in humans. This review details the contribution of 31P MRS to the diagnosis of metabolic myopathies and provides some clues for the use of this technique in a clinical perspective. Finally, the contribution of 31P MRS to our understanding of the physiopathology of several other diseases is highlighted.
