Intense off-resonant RF irradiation can lead to saturation of the macromolecular pool magnetization and enhance bound pool dipolar order responsible for the inhomogeneous magnetization transfer (ihMT) effect, but the intensity of RF power in human imaging studies is limited by safety constraints on RF heating. High RF intensities can still be achieved if applied in short pulses with low duty-cycle. Here we investigate the benefits of low duty-cycle irradiation for MT and ihMT studies with both… CONTINUE READING
