Fifteen (11male and 4female; mean age=43yrs) patients with definitive diagnosis of glioma were imaged on 3T scanner, using SWAN imaging while breathing normal air and after 5 minutes of breathing 100% oxygen. Quantified values of R2*, phase and magnitude showed significant changes on different tumor tissue type in hyperoxia as compare to normoxia. Significant changes was observed in ΔR2*, Δ phase and Δ mag of different tissue type from normal. We conclude that there is differential response to different tumor tissue type to hyperoxia and this information may be of value for tissue classification in brain tumor tissue type in future.
