In this pilot study, we developed and applied a specialized symmetric EPI approach for the study of hyperpolarized [1-13C]pyruvate metabolism in the human prostate. We show that this approach can acquire ghost-free hyperpolarized [1-13C]pyruvate and [1-13C]lactate images with high spatiotemporal resolution in a clinical setting.
