We designed and optimized a dynamic double spin echo (DSE) acquisition scheme for hyperpolarized(HP) 13C metabolites dynamic diffusion weighted imaging(DWI). Compared to traditional DSE sequence, our sequence could provide higher SNR for longer dynamic imaging duration. Our studies on TRAMP mice indicate a dynamic change of HP lactate ADC over time, which might have potential to improve the assessment of aggressive cancers.
