Studies have been performed to compare the spatially resolved spectroscopy (SPARS) sequence and the stimulated echo acquisition mode (STEAM) sequence. Slice profile and imaging studies were performed using phantoms to compare the quality of localization with the two sequences when the volume of interest (VOI) was moved away from the magnet isocenter.
