This technique can produce up to 10’000-times higher signal than conventional MRI.
We established this technique (in collaboration with Prof. A. Comment CIBM-EPFL) to measure non-invasively glycolysis, Krebs-cycle activity, and beta-oxidation in the ischemia/reperfusion model of the rat (SNF grant, PI. J. Schwitter).
An extension of the SNF grant allows for future research applications to explore the myocardial metabolism in ischemia/reperfusion, heart failure, cardiomyopathies, and to assess novel treatment strategies in these diseases.
A total of 73 articles were published as a result of the CRMC research activity since its foundation in 2009.
