We have applied a method that acquires simultaneously the water and metabolite signals using multi-coil sensitivities for proton chemical shift imaging (CSI) thermometry. The method consists of measurement shifting only the water signal on the image, and a data process separating the water and metabolite signals using the coil sensitivity difference. The results of a cooled phantom experiments revealed that the method may be useful for acquiring temperature map without increasing scan time and contaminating the frequency modulation sidebands caused by water signal.
