This year’s workshop will focus on the clinical translation of molecular/metabolic imaging techniques. The workshop will include an overview of dissolution Dynamic Nuclear Polarisation (dDNP) and Chemical Exchange Saturation Transfer (CEST) approaches to studying underlying biological processes. There will then be hands-on demonstrations of the techniques in action followed by further lectures exploring their clinical utilisation.
