OBJECTIVES As a unique tool to assess metabolic fluxes noninvasively, (13)C magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) could help to characterize and understand malignancy in human tumors. However, its low sensitivity has hampered applications in patients. The aim of this study was to demonstrate that with sensitivity-optimized localized (13)C MRS and intravenous infusion of [1-(13)C]glucose under euglycemia, it is possible to assess the dynamic conversion of glucose into its metabolic products in… CONTINUE READING
