This study investigated the diagnostic capability of a novel scheme of Length and Offset VARied Saturation (LOVARS) CEST method, for detecting and differentiating intracerebral hemorrhage from ischemic stroke at early stage. With the saturation offsets of 2 ppm and -3.5 ppm, the new LOVARS real image is able to separate ischemic lesion from hemorrhagic lesion by the opposite signal appearances for all patients enrolled. i.e. the former is hypointensity while the latter is hyperintensity. Our results revealed that the LOVARS real signals are significantly higher in hemorrhage than in ischemic stroke, which may serve as an imaging marker.
