Spinal cord MRS has been mainly restricted to the brain-stem and the upper part of th e cervical spine. In this work first MRS p atient data from the thoracic spinal cord are shown. Furthermore the spectral quality as well as its consistency over different volunteers and patients in th e cervical spine was improved. Both was possible due to a combination of outer-volume suppre ssion bands with a very sharp ex citation profile, based on quadrat ic-phase (QPP) and higher- order-phase (HOPP) saturation pulses, and localized higher-order shimming, based on high-resolution cardiac-triggered B0-mapping.
