pH mapping enables the opportunity to investigate a key
parameter in many biochemical processes, the pH, which
is relevant for a broad range of disease
characterization such like cancer, inflammatory diseases
(e.g. Alzheimer disease, multiple sclerosis and
osteoarthritis), hypoxia and many others.
of pH, acquired spatially and time resolved helps to
reveal the potential and the limits of the method. pH
mapping was applied
tailor-made spectral-spatial pulse design and
acquisition techniques on rats, investigating induced
metabolic alkalosis in kidneys and sterile inflammation.
