Monitoring of tumor reoxygenation following irradiation by 31P magnetic resonance spectroscopy: an experimental study of human melanoma xenografts.


BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Inadequate tumor reoxygenation during radiation therapy may cause local treatment failure. This study was aimed at investigating the potential usefulness of 31P-MRS in monitoring tumor reoxygenation following radiation treatment. MATERIALS AND METHODS Tumors of two human melanoma xenograft lines (BEX-t and HUX-t) were exposed to 15… (More)
