We developed a high-sensitivity dynamic glucose enhanced (DGE) MRI acquisition and post-processing scheme for sensitive monitoring glucose uptake and clearance in both brain parenchyma and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) at 3T. By investigating Carr-Purcell-Meiboom-Gill sequence (CPMG), on-resonance variable delay multi-pulse (onVDMP) and on-resonance spin-locking (onSL), a high-sensitivity DGE MRI scheme composed of CPMG method for monitoring parenchyma and onVDMP method for monitoring CSF was proposed. We incorporated the multilinear singular value decomposition (MLSVD) based denoising method in post-processing, which enables the detection of DGE signals from the brain parenchyma and CSF at low concentration of D-glucose (12.5% w/w) injection.
