Our mission is to provide a forum for all scientists and clinicians interested in the physics, mathematics and clinical application of chemical exchange saturation transfer (CEST) imaging.


  • To educate students and fellows on all aspects of CEST and its measurements

  • To provide scientists from various backgrounds and clinicians the opportunity to pool knowledge and to build connections

  • To discuss recent developments

  • To foster the development of CEST technology and the translation of CEST into clinical practice

News & Events

  • CEST 2022 will be held as a hybrid meeting, but we strongly encourage in-person participation

  • Oral Presentation and E-poster Presentation Submission
