A 19F magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) approach to measuring hypoxia in experimental tumors in rats at a field strength of 2.35 T has been investigated in a combined study of in situ and excised tumors. The detection of tumor hypoxia is based on the hypoxia marker approach which depends on the selective, covalent binding of a fluorinated 2-nitroimidazole to hypoxic cells. The 19F MRS measurement of in vivo hypoxia marker binding was made at a fixed postinjection time when unbound… CONTINUE READING
