Introduction: Chemical exchange saturation transfer (CEST) imaging is based on measuring water signal attenuation caused by the exchange of magnetization between radio frequency labeled solute protons and water protons. It has found significant applications in imaging stroke and cancer. Conventionally, a long saturation block (typically several seconds of… CONTINUE READING
