13 C NMR spectroscopy is applied to observe various metabolites in vivo, e.g. triacylglycerides (TAG). High field strengths and 1 H spin decoupling enhance signal and information content of 13 C NMR spectra. In this study high resolution 1 Hdecoupled 13 C NMR spectra of the human calf were obtained on an experimental 7T wholebody MR tomograph.
