At high field (7 T) spectral editing of γ-aminobutyric acid with MEGA-point-resolved spectroscopy is inefficient due to the large chemical shift displacement error. In this article, a new pulse sequence is designed which has minimal chemical shift displacement error to perform an efficient spectral editing of the γ-aminobutyric acid 3.0 ppm resonance at 7 T. The sequence consists of the conventional MEGA editing pulses and a semi-localized by adiabatic selective refocusing sequence. Phantom and in vivo measurements demonstrated an efficient detection of γ-aminobutyric acid. Using ECG triggering, excellent in vivo performance of the MEGA-semi-localized by adiabatic selective refocusing (MEGA-sLASER) provided well-resolved γ-aminobutyric acid signals in 27 mL volumes in the human brain at an echo time of 74 ms within a relatively short acquisition time (5 min). Furthermore, the high efficiency of the MEGA-sLASER was demonstrated by acquiring small volumes (8 mL) at an echo time of 74 ms, as well as long echo time measurements (222 ms in 27 mL volume).
