1. A method for reconstructing a spectroscopic image of an object, the method comprising:
(a) taking magnetic resonance imaging data of the object;
(b) temporally cross-correlating multiple k-space locations of said data to map a new correlation domain, the new correlation domain representative of a Fourier transform of a function defining a spectroscopic image, squared; and
(c) forming the spectroscopic image using said new correlation domain as a representation for transmission to an output module or display module or combination thereof, the forming including performing an inverse transform on the new correlation domain.
