Patient
female, 47 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    The 1H – spectrum of liver before treatment. Lipid concentration under 24%

    For measurement the ratio of the areas under peaks of lipids and water by the formula: (S (Lip) / S (H20)) × 100), which shows the percentage of lipids in the liver tissue.

     
    Area of Interest: Liver; Imaging Technique: MR-Spectroscopy; Procedure: Molecular imaging; Special Focus: Metabolic disorders;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    The 1H – spectrum of liver after treatment. Lipid concentration under 3%

    The decrease of lipid concentration is obvious. There was no need for additional methods and treatment for this patient.
