To translate the recently developed PRO‐QUEST (Progressive saturation for quantifying exchange rates using saturation times) sequence from preclinical 9.4T to 3T clinical magnetic field strength.
Numerical simulations were performed to define the optimal saturation flip angles for PRO‐QUEST saturation pulses at 3T and demonstrate the effect of a ∆T2 error on the exchange rate (k...
Chemical exchange saturation transfer (CEST) can potentially support cancer imaging with metabolically derived information. Multiparametric prostate MRI has improved diagnosis but may benefit from additional information to reduce the need for biopsies.
To optimize an acquisition and postprocessing protocol for 3.0 T multipool CEST analysis of prostate data and evaluate the repeatability...
The concentration of sodium is a functional cell parameter and absolute quantification can be interesting for diagnostical purposes. The accuracy of sodium magnetic resonance imaging (23Na-MRI) is strongly biased by partial volume effects (PVEs). Hence our purpose was to establish a partial volume correction (PVC) method for 23Na-MRI.The existing geometric transfer matrix (GTM) correction method was...
