Dynamic glucoCEST at clinical field strengths is very challenging due to the low effect size. Here, we present a saturation, imaging and post-processing protocol for minimizing possible artifacts to detect dynamic CEST effects reliably, and demonstrate the application in two glioblastoma patients at 3 T.
