CrCEST Imaging Tool May Detect Mitochondrial Function in Muscles

Creatine chemical exchange saturation transfer or CrCEST, a metabolic imaging tool, may be a valuable technique for detecting mitochondrial function across muscles in people with Friedreich’s ataxia (FA), a new study found. To date, CrCEST has not been used to assess mitochondrial capacity in people with FA. “CrCEST MRI…
