2-hydroxyglutarate (2-HG) has emerged as a biomarker of tumour cell IDH mutations that may enable the differential diagnosis of glioma patients. At 3 Tesla, detection of 2-HG with magnetic resonance spectroscopy is challenging because of metabolite signal overlap and a spectral pattern modulated by slice selection and chemical shift displacement. Using(More)
This study aims classification of phosphorus magnetic resonance spectroscopic imaging ((31)P-MRSI) data of human brain tumors using machine-learning algorithms. The metabolite peak intensities and ratios were estimated for brain tumor and healthy (31)P MR spectra acquired at 3T. The spectra were classified based on metabolite characteristics using logistic(More)
Fluorine MRI ((19) F MRI) is receiving an increasing attention as a viable alternative to proton-based MRI ((1) H MRI) for dedicated application in molecular imaging. The (19) F nucleus has a high gyromagnetic ratio, a 100% natural abundance and is furthermore hardly present in human tissues allowing for hot spot MR imaging. The applicability of (19) F MRI(More)
The purpose of this study was to apply compressed sensing method for accelerated phosphorus MR spectroscopic imaging (31P-MRSI) of human brain in vivo at 3T. Fast 31P-MRSI data of five volunteers were acquired on a 3T clinical MR scanner using pulse-acquire sequence with a pseudorandom undersampling pattern for a data reduction factor of 5.33 and were(More)
