Magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) can be used to examine the bioenergetics of human skeletal muscle continuously and noninvasively. Application of this new technology has already resulted in improved understanding of the metabolic changes that accompany muscular exercise. In particular, analysis of human muscle fatique using MRS has yielded important new information; further, investigation of several muscle diseases has shed new light on their biochemical basis. At present, the most important medical application of MRS appears to be in the area of understanding disease mechanisms and bioenergetics.
