CEST-MRI is emerging as a powerful modality for molecular imaging of cardiac metabolites and fibrosis. In order to derive all contrasts (amide proton transfer: APT, creatine, and magnetization transfer: MT) a substantial number of differently CEST-weighted images must be acquired. Application of compressed sensing for cardiac CEST enables a 5x acceleration of acquisition with preserved accuracy.
