Test Details
Test Code:RA0112
Test Name:MR Spectroscopy Brain
Test Details & Preparation
Magnetic Resonance (MR) spectroscopy is a non-invasive diagnostic test for measuring biochemical changes in the brain, especially the presence of tumours. While magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) identifies the anatomical location of a tumour, MR spectroscopy compares the chemical composition of normal brain tissue with abnormal tumour tissue. This test can also be used to detect tissue changes in stroke and epilepsy.

MR spectroscopy is conducted on the same machine as conventional MRI. The MRI scan uses a powerful magnet, radio waves, and a computer to create detailed images. Spectroscopy is a series of tests that are added to the MRI scan of your brain or spine to measure the chemical metabolism of a suspected tumour.

MR spectroscopy analyzes molecules such as hydrogen ions or protons. Proton spectroscopy is more commonly used. There are several different metabolites, or products of metabolism, that can be measured to differentiate between tumour types.

MR spectroscopy can be used to determine tumour type and aggressiveness, and distinguish between tumour recurrence and radiation necrosis.

Before MR spectroscopy, you should avoid caffeinated beverages wear comfortable clothes since you will be lying still for about 30 minutes and avoid wearing jewellery and metal, and remove credit cards.

Because MR spectroscopy requires special tests on your tumour or lesion, it may take slightly longer than a conventional MRI. It is important that you relax and lie as still as possible. Any movement during this time will blur the picture.

A Neuroradiologist will analyse the MR spectroscopy results. Treatment plans can be based solely on these results, so it is important that the results are as accurate as possible. The radiologist will promptly review your results and communicate directly with your referring doctor, who in turn will discuss the results with you at a later time.
