In this work, APT-CEST imaging in combination with 1H and 31P spectroscopy was performed to investigate 17 patients with different brain tumors. A synergistic analysis should help for a better understanding of the APT-CEST contrasts such as MTRasym with regard to tumor metabolism and further physiological relationships such as the pH-sensitivity.
