MRS or MRI: MRI is magnetic resonance imaging a type of medical imaging
MRS is MR spectroscopy a rarer medical type of exam based on the science behind MRIs in part aimed at either parts of the brain or perhaps skeletal muscle to evaluate metabolism at times....both would be done in an MRI facility. when developed the nuclear part of both was dropped so as to not scare people about it....
