CrCEST MRI in Mitochondrial Disease


The Mitochondrial Medicine Program at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia is conducting a study focusing on non-invasive MRI procedures to measure biological activity within leg muscles of individuals, including both healthy volunteers and those with mitochondrial disease.
This type of MRI is for research only, and it is not currently approved by the FDA.
There is no direct benefit, but this research may contribute to future mitochondrial medicine.
Your participation will last for approximately half a day during a visit at CHOP.
We hope this research will contribute to the current knowledge of mitochondrial disease and improve diagnostic approaches. To learn more or inquire about this research study, please contact Sara Nguyen (
