In this study, we have employed a simple binomial excitation pulse to follow metabolism of hyperpolarized [2-13C]dihydroxyacetone in perfused livers. We demonstrate the utility of binomial pulses in suppressing the hyperpolarized (HP) substrate resonance and maximizing metabolite signal intensities.
