The provider uses a diagnostic imaging technique called magnetic resonance spectroscopy or MRS to detect and identify the chemical composition of diseased tissue and structures or to study the metabolism of organs. MRS is similar to a conventional magnetic resonance imaging or MRI, and a provider may perform it as part of a routine MRI, but an MRI examines body structure where an MRS monitors and measures body chemistry, such as metabolism. MRS is a diagnostic tool for determination of many brain disorders, the degree of malignancy of tumors, and for evaluating metabolic disorders of the muscles and nervous system.
