Phosphocreatine plays a major role in the metabolic upkeep of tissues such as the muscles and the heart. Chemical Exchange-sensitive MRI has been shown to have sensitivity to phosphocreatine. We examine the sensitivity of Phosphocreatine CEST (PCrCEST) to changes in phosphocreatine levels and pH via PCrCEST imaging in the mouse hindlimb while inducing euthanasia and present high resolution PCrCEST maps in the ante- and post-mortem.
