Myoinositol peak

Myoinositol is one of the compounds images with MR spectroscopy (MRS) at both 1.5 T and 3 T and is seen to resonate at 3.5 ppm chemical shift (right of the choline peak). 

Myoinositol is a precursor of both phosphatidylinositol (the major inositol-containing phospholipid) and of phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate (a key molecule in cellular signal transduction). It also plays an important role in osmoregulation 3.
