Chemical Exchange Saturation Transfer (CEST) enables
indirect imaging of metabolites
magnetization transfer between exchanging protons of
functional groups and water protons. We propose and
evaluate a 2D-CEST sequence with high spectral sampling
which allows for pixel-wise detection and separation of
NOE-, amides-, and amine-mediated CEST effects and MT
simultaneously by the use of a multi Lorentzian fit.
Especially isolated amide and NOE mapping allowed
insights into glioblastoma substructure.
