The aim of this study was
to understand whether amide proton transfer (APT) contrast on brain tumor
patient will be impacted by applying three different imaging sequences, spin-echo EPI,
single-shot FSE, and a recent developed 3D FSE spiral. Although our finding on APT
contrast appears to be similar among various sequences, careful consideration may be required when choosing
the appropriate CEST readout sequences for your own applications.
