Since gag-CEST is promising at 7T for imaging knee
cartilage, we have evaluated the pH sensitivity of
gagCEST on 5% chondrotin sulfate phantoms with varying
pH from 4-8 at both room temperature as well as at 37 C
as there are emerging reports of a pH drop in the knee
cartilage of osteoarthritis subjects.
