Factors affecting 39K NMR detectability in rat tissue
Rashid, S. Abdul, Adam, W. R., Craik, D. J., Shehan, B. P., & Wellard, R. Mark (1991) Factors affecting 39K NMR detectability in rat tissue. Magnetic Resonance in Medicine, 17(1), pp. 213-224.
In this study we have found that NMR detectability of 39K in rat thigh muscle may be substantially higher (up to 100% oftotal tissue potassium) than values previously reported of around 40%. The signal was found to consist of two superimposed components, one broad and one narrow, of approximately equal area. Investigations involving improvements in spectral parameters such as signal-to-noise ratio and baseline roll, together with computer simulations of spectra, show that the quality of the spectra has a major effect on the amount of signal detected, which is largely due to the loss of detectability of the broad signal component. In particular, lower-field spectrometers using conventional probes and detection methods generally have poorer signal-to-noise and worse baseline roll artifacts, which make detection of a broad component of the muscle signal difficult.
