  • Tumoral pathologies: choline, myo-inositol (gliomas), free lipids (necrotic tumor: glioblastoma, metastasis…), alanine (meningioma), lactate
  • Demyelinizing inflammatory pathologies: myo-inositol,
  • Infectious diseases: free acetate and aminoacids in certain abscesses, reduction of NAA and VIH encephalopathy
  • Metabolic pathologies: myo-inositol and glutamine / glutamate in hepatic encephalopathy, lactate and diffuse cerebral distress
  • Epilepsy, brain maturation and degenerative diseases…
