The aim of our study was to establish valuable correlations between biochemical composition and relaxation rates of a tissue by means of a preparative analytical biochemical procedure. Such a method does not provide evidence of a unique causal factor, but it is possible to draw important conclusions: lipid and cholesterol do not affect signal intensity in a positive way, while the other substances do seem to exert such an influence.

Abstract

The aim of our study was to establish valuable correlations between biochemical composition and relaxation rates of a tissue by means of a preparative analytical biochemical procedure. Such a method does not provide evidence of a unique causal factor, but it is possible to draw important conclusions: lipid and cholesterol do not affect signal intensity in a positive way, while the other substances do seem to exert such an influence. Further studies will be able to provide more detailed information about the role of each biomolecule in the signal production. The advantage of our procedure lies in the possibility of obtaining useful information even from just one sample; the need for a large number of specimens is thus obviated.
