A 1 H-MRSI sequence with spectral-spatial refocusing pulses was evaluated for prostate applications at 7T. The combination of an external Tx array coil and an Rx endorectal coil allowed the use of these non-adiabatic pulses, while retaining sensitivity within the prostate. Well-resolved spectra in the prostate of patients were obtained, with some variation due to B 0 and B 1 inhomogeneities.
