- 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
