MR spectroscopy is used to provide in vivo biochemical information about cerebral metabolites. Magnetic field homogeneity secondary to anatomic interfaces, hemorrhage, or necrosis may lead to suboptimal MR spectroscopy. Susceptibility-weighted imaging (SWI) can identify field inhomogeneity and could be used to guide MR spectroscopy voxel placement, leading to higher-quality MR spectroscopy examinations.
