Main Focus

In the work group of Prof. Scheffler I work on protein CEST-MRI at UHF as part of the DFG project qCEST.

With CEST-MRI we aim to detect proteins (e.g. amide) and metabolites (e.g. glucose) in healthy and pathological tissues in the human brain by an indirect measure of controlled signal losses in the water proton pool.

My work focusses on studying protein CEST effects at 9.4T. At ultra-high fields, we exploit the generally improved spectral resolution. Additionally, challenges arise from B0 and B1 inhomogeneities which we try to tackle with the use of parallel transmission and optimized RF pulses.
