Deuterium metabolic imaging (DMI) is a promising approach to study tumor metabolism. Still, DMI’s signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) is limited because of 2H’s low Larmor frequency, coupled to the low concentrations of DMI’s targets. We recently proposed a multi-echo balanced steady-state free precession (ME-bSSFP) method increasing DMI’s SNR, but still find it lacking in some aspects. This work assesses simple apodization, Compressed Sensing Multiplicative (CoSeM) and Block-matching/3D filtering (BM3D) denoising methods for improving DMI’s results. The ability of the latter denoising methods to enhance sensitivity without blurring resolution, is evidenced by pancreatic cancer studies carried at 15.2T.
