Abstract

This article reviews the current state of magnetic resonance spectroscopy applied in the human spinal cord with respect to its clinical applications and challenges in comparison to investigations in the human brain. Results from several disease processes affecting the spinal cord are presented, and potential advantages of applying clinical MRS in their investigation are emphasized.
