I’m currently working on simulations of the Bloch-McConnell equations for quantification and optimization of the saturation pulses in CEST-MRI. This can be used to improve the detection of molecules like glucose or proteins. The goal is to find SAR- and time-efficient saturation pulses which can be used at both, clinical and ultra-high-field MRI.

Figure 1: New spin-lock saturation scheme enables a robust T1⍴-weighted contrast at UHF-MRI. a) Saturation with commonly used HS pulse (B1max = 20µT) shows artifacts at 9.4T. b) A new pulse shape is able to generate a uniform contrast with only a third of the power (B1max = 6.5µT)
