A PARACEST MRI contrast agent has been developed that is responsive to esterase enzyme activity. De-esterification and lactonization cause the appearance of an “enzymeresponsive” CEST effect from an amine group. A second “control” CEST effect can be detected before and after enzyme catalysis, so that this contrast agent is self-calibrating.
