Chemical exchange saturation transfer (CEST) is widely exploited in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) because of its special quantitative contrast mechanisms. To overcome the long acquisition time required by fast spin-echo multi-slice imaging and alleviate the sensitivity to field inhomogeneity and chemical shift effects appeared in echo planar imaging, we proposed a CEST imaging scheme based on spatiotemporally encoded magnetic resonance imaging (SPEN MRI). Experimental results validated the feasibility and capability of the new scheme.
