Chemical Exchange Saturation Transfer (CEST) is an MR based imaging method that can image compounds containing protons exhibiting a suitable exchange rate with bulk water. One of the crucial technical hurdles in CEST MRI is, as CEST signal highly depends on the saturation frequency, how to accurately correct the B0 inhomogeneity in each voxel. We proposed two deep learning (DL) based methods for estimating B0 inhomogeneities to accelerate CEST imaging using spare samples. While only a small sample size was used, our study shows the potential of DL-based B0 mapping, which can greatly reduce the total CEST acquisition time.
