Dr. Marty Pagel introduces the CEST MRI technique, demonstrates a basic experiment, and explains why measuring protein, acid, and metabolite content can be so beneficial in applications of brain ischemia and cancer.
Key Topics Include:
- Introduction to CEST MRI for assessing disease parameters in brain cancer and ischemia
- How CEST compliments Bruker’s MRI/PET instruments
- Assessing tumor metabolism using CEST
- Bruker BioSpin’s new CEST method now available in ParaVision 360
- The upcoming CEST 2020 and CEST 2021 meetings, where more can be learned about this product and CEST MRI applications
