Abstract
Proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) was used to assay ethanol in plasma. Ethanol concentrations determined by MRS and conventional enzymatic methods are in excellent agreement. fn addition to ethanol, acetone, acetate and beta-hydroxybutyrate can be quantified simultaneo usly in the same sample. Proton MRS of plasma offers a rapid evaluatio n of human ethanol metabolism and may be useful in screening for chron ic alcoholism.
