A variety of treatments that modulate tumor oxygen tension are used clinically to improve the outcome of radiotherapy. High resolution, noninvasive measurements of the effects of these treatments would greatly facilitate the development of improved therapies and could guide treatment of cancer patients. Previous work demonstrated that magnetic resonance (MR) gradient echo imaging of the water proton resonance detects changes in T2* and T1 in tumors during hyperoxia that may reflect increased… CONTINUE READING
