GluCEST imaging at 7.0T has been promising in clinical applications as demonstrated in small subset of temporal lobe epilepsy subjects and in early psychosis. However, these studies employed 2D GluCEST limiting to single slice and limited coverage of anatomy of interest. Here, we tried to implement the partial 3D GluCEST in order to capture the glutamate contrast from the entire hippocampus as opposed to single slice in the same amount of time.
