Real-time detection of the rates of metabolic flux, or exchange rates of endogenous enzymatic reactions, is now feasible in biological systems using Dynamic Nuclear Polarization Magnetic Resonance. Derivation of reaction rate kinetics from this technique typically requires multi-compartmental modeling of dynamic data, and results are therefore(More)
Back-to-back (1)H MRSI scans, using an endorectal and phased-array coil combination, were performed on 18 low-risk patients with prostate cancer at 3 T, employing TEs of 32 and 100 ms in order to compare metabolite visualization at each TE. Outer-volume suppression of lipid signals was performed using regional saturation (REST) slabs and the quantification(More)
BACKGROUND Dichloroacetate (DCA) has been found to have antitumour properties. METHODS We investigated the cellular and metabolic responses to DCA treatment and recovery in human colorectal (HT29, HCT116 WT and HCT116 Bax-ko), prostate carcinoma cells (PC3) and HT29 xenografts by flow cytometry, western blotting, electron microscopy, (1)H and(More)
BACKGROUND Endovaginal MRI (evMRI) at 3.0-T with T2-weighted (T2-W) and ZOnal Oblique Multislice (ZOOM)-diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) potentially improves the detection of stage Ia/Ib1 cervical cancer. We aimed to determine its sensitivity/specificity, document tumour-to-stromal contrast and establish the effect of imaging on surgical management. (More)
