Chemical shift encoding techniques can quantify chemical species content and investigate metabolic changes in physiological and diseased conditions of multiple musculoskeletal tissues, including skeletal muscle, bone marrow, intervertebral disc, cartilage and bone. The present lecture aims to provide an overview of the most important technical aspects when applying chemical shift encoding techniques, including single-voxel magnetic resonance spectroscopy, chemical shift imaging and chemical shift encoding-based water-fat separation techniques, for targeting lipids, creatine, macromolecules, choline and phosphorous metabolites in musculoskeletal tissues.
