AbstractDetecting early disc degeneration is of vital importance in order to identify subjects that are suitable for treatment. However, current diagnostic techniques are not sensitive to the early stages of intervertebral disc (IVD) degeneration, which involves the loss of proteoglycans. Recently, it has been suggested that glycosaminoglycan content can be quantified by chemical exchange saturation transfer (gagCEST). In the present work, we conducted gagCEST imaging for IVDs of human volunteers. Our results show that in vivo gagCEST quantification is feasible at 3 Tesla and may potentially be a useful clinical tool in identifying early degenerative changes in the human IVDs.
