We introduce an efficient modeling and simulation
method, capable of simulating MR experiments for
arbitrary many spin pools. It is based on a
matrix-algebra based calculation of the Bloch-McConnell
equations for n spin pools, including the effects of
cross-relaxation (nuclear Overhauser effect (NOE)),
chemical exchange saturation transfer (CEST) and
magnetization transfer involving a macromolecular pool
(MT) on MR experiments.
