Chemical exchange saturation transfer MRI using intermolecular double-quantum coherences with multiple refocusing pulses.

Abstract

Chemical exchange saturation transfer (CEST) provides a new type of image contrast in MRI. Due to the intrinsically low CEST effect, new and improved experimental techniques are required to achieve reliable and quantitative CEST images. In the present work, we proposed a novel and more sensitive CEST acquisition approach, based on the intermolecular double… (More)
