  • The recently developed technique of gradient, high-resolution magic-angle spinning NMR (g-hr-MAS-NMR) spectroscopy was applied to the study of ex vivo human lipoma and liposarcoma tissue. Compared with conventional 1H-NMR, the g-hr-MAS method yielded a large improvement in spectral resolution and permitted the detection of metabolite resonance's in a well-differentiated liposarcoma that was not observed in spectra of similar samples obtained using nonspinning NMR methods. These findings suggest that g-hr-MAS-NMR spectroscopy provides a key improvement in spectral quality for ex vivo lipoma and liposarcoma tissue thereby permitting a more precise determination of tissue metabolite composition than conventional nonspinning NMR methods.
